Alla Prima workshop this Saturday

Upcoming workshop at the Grimsby Public Art Gallery:

Painting the Still Life Lively


Alla Prima (Italian, meaning at first attempt), may also be referred to as 'direct painting'. It is a method in which layers of wet paint are applied to previous layers of wet paint. This technique requires a fast way of working, and usually has to be finished before the first layers of paint have dried. Jan will demonstrate how to achieve a fresh and painterly effect that incorporates alla prima techniques. You will work from a colourful still life set up featuring seasonal foliage and interesting objects. This series is suitable for those with a general knowledge of paint handling. A material list will be provided upon registration.

  1. Bonjour,

    Une technique certainement pas très simple quand on est comme moi assez lente pour travailler...
    J'aime beaucoup cette merveilleuse composition florale. Pourquoi le titre de "maman" ? Est-ce un bouquet destiné à une maman ?...
    Une belle harmonie de couleurs.

    Gros bisous.
