Alla Prima

My earlier paintings were mostly worked with a glazing technique which involves thin layers over a period of days and weeks. I love the glow that this technique presents however I wanted to try painting with more thickness and texture to the paint so I have been staring to complete single sitting "Alla Prima" techniques.

I am painting from Life so this involves a single sitting before the flower wilts and changes form.

Its very enjoyable pushing the paint with the brush and plan on doing quite a few more of these!
