Direct painting—alla prima—done all at once yields fresh results. Using a still life and working from observation, in the morning we’ll do a minimum of six - twelve small, spontaneous paintings on unstretched canvas or gessoed paper. After a short lunch break, we’ll analyze the results of the morning’s work with the aim of seeing more clearly and reaching an honest response to our experience. We’ll take the results into another one or two, somewhat larger, stretched canvases. Finding our true intention with inspiration is the aim of this workshop. Please check DAC website for supply list.
