The alla prima or direct painting method seeks to capture an image in one painting session – perfect for recording the fleeting beauty of fresh flowers. Painters are encouraged (but not required) to bring fresh garden flowers to create still life arrangements in the studio. Lectures, critiques, demonstrations and plenty of painting time will help participants weigh aesthetic choices and compositional ideas. There will be opportunities to ask and answer questions regarding painting in general, and alla prima painting in particular. Oil, acrylic, watercolor and pastel artists welcome.
