Alla Prima painting, or wet into wet, single-session painting is a stimulating method which teaches you to be present in every brush stroke, focusing only on the essentials, ultimately teaching you great dexterity and control. With demonstration and gentle critique, Felicia will challenge you to correctly observe and record the fundamentals: shapes, values, edges and color.
Do studies, not pictures. Know when you are licked – start another. Be alive, stop when your interest is lost. Put off finish – make a lot of starts. It is so hard and so long before a student comes to a realization that these few, large, simple spots in right relations are the most important things in the study of painting. They are the fundamentals of all painting. Paint the color tones as they come against each other, and make them sing, vibrate. —Charles W. Hawthorne, “Hawthorne on Painting”
