Alla Prima Portraits


  • Award Winning Artist Workshops 123 West McDowell Street Matthews, NC, 28105 United States

This 3-Day Studio Workshop will instruct students in the Alla Prima style, (painting all at once). I feel that with a few pointers, painting the figure portrait can be a straightforward pleasure.

Your painting will be done wet into wet and completed in one session. During my daily, alla prima demonstrations, I will go over a few anatomical rules, the head structure and the mixing of different flesh tones. The focus is on learning the Alla Prima technique to produce a painting in one sitting. Whether you paint from photos or life, I want to leave you with the mental tools for the alla prima technique. 

To ensure that I have plenty of time with each student, I am limiting the class to only ten students. 

This 3-Day Workshop Class held 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day.
