Alla Prima Portrait Painting 2-Day Workshop
This intensive workshop focuses on the alla prima method of portrait painting. Alla prima (or ‘at the first’) is a direct painting method where paint is applied wet-in-wet and the painting is completed in a single session.
Working with a limited colour palette, following Anders Zorn’s system, you will be shown a stepby- step process to portrait painting, working from a photo reference on day one, and then from life on day two. As well as pre-mixing colours and values on the palette, you will also mix on the canvas, wet-in-wet, and creating a more expressive and painterly portrait.
Some of the topics that will be covered include:
• Organising your palette, colour mixing, and colour systems
• Drawing, and finding the proportions that capture the initial impression of the model
• Understanding value and recreating light and shadow
• Brushwork techniques
• Refining the quality of edges
