Alla Prima Floral Paintings with Ann Willsie

Sun, April 29, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Come out and join Ann Willsie as she demonstrates the alla prima technique in oils!

Alla Prima is a traditional way of painting, particularly in oils, wherein a painting is completed in one sitting. The painting is built up in layers upon layers of wet paint. Ann will be painting a floral piece while discussing composition, the purpose of an underpainting, how to work wet on wet with oil paint, building up the layers from dark to light.

Ann will also be talking about studio tips for working in oils, the lowdown on different brands and colors, and tools of the trade.

Space is limited and registration is required.
