This class is for students at an intermediate or advanced level. Some oil portraiture experience is necessary. Learn how to create a vibrant and dazzling portrait in Alla Prima style with a limited palette. Our goal is to add new ways of painting portraiture to your repertoire.
Alla Prima means “at once” in italian. This is the method of painting in one application, without retouching. It is also called “direct” painting. In this one-day class you will learn how to use various techniques to master the Alla Prima style of portrait painting. Oksana will do a demo and help you every step of the way.
You will also learn the following (and much more):
- How great composition leads to great paintings
- Ways to guide the viewer’s gaze through the story of the painting
- How you can introduce “drama” without interrupting the harmony
- How to convey feelings and emotions in your paintings
