PREVIEW for Kathryn Stedham’s ONE-DAY Workshop @ Santa Fe store.)
THIS IS A PREVIEW FOR Kathryn Sedhams one-day workshop HERE.
“Alla Prima” is a painting technique in which a canvas is completed in one session, often having a thickly applied impasto. <Origin of alla prima. Italian: literally, at the first.> This is a particularly useful technique for: plein aire landscape, portraiture and still life painting, where capturing the moment is key! This workshop will focus on oil painting tools and methods to render an image with speed and accuracy. Skills such as painting with palette knife, building thick to thin textures, color use and selecting painting mediums for a desired effect will be practiced. We will be learning a non-toxic process of oil painting.
