Capturing the Abstract Qualities of the Alla Prima Still Life and Portrait
Meeting Dates: April 5th, 6th and 7th Meeting Times: 9:30am to 2:30pm This workshop will be a comprehensive study into painting the “Alla Prima” still life and portrait in oils. A demonstration each morning will be given while discussing the key elements that makeup not only an accurate still life and portrait but a compelling painting. The fundamentals of a painting are key to achieving a solid effect of light and form in paint, but great still life and portraiture goes beyond this, and captures a sense of breath and liveliness in the finished painting. Students will paint after the morning demo and individual help will be given to each student as they work from a still life on day one and day two and a live model on day two and three. Not only will advisement be given on the current painting, but help for students as a whole to achieve the next desired level in their work will be provided . All of the techniques of painting will be covered from drawing, composition, color, value, and edges, as well as how to bring a a still life and portrait to a likeness and ultimately capture a sense of life and vibrancy in the finished painting.
