Wet-on-wet, or alla prima (Italian, meaning at first attempt),

Learn how to paint using the still life as your subject. Beginner and intermediate painters are welcome to join us in an exploration of oil/acrylic painting in the ‘alla prima’ style! Alla prima (Italian for at first attempt) is a method of painting directly, brush stroke on brush stroke, to complete a painting in one or two sessions.
Working with still life, we will go through the steps to create luminous paintings. Demonstration and discussion each week. Beginners and returnees welcome.
