Alla Prima Figure Painting

shevlinoWorkshop by David Shevlino
November 5-7, 2014, 10am-5pm
Members: $250, Non-members: $275

This class is about painting the figure Alla Prima (wet into wet) and the techniques used to create a fresh, direct response to our subjects. There will be an initial demonstration, then students will work on how to interpret and simplify their subject by seeing the figure as a series of basic shapes and forms described by color/light and shadow. By learning to simplify what we see, we become better able to paint our subjects with greater clarity and directness. This class will be particularly helpful to students who wish to paint more loosely and to use their brushstrokes with economy.
