Experience the power of warms and cools, complementary color, simplifying, loosening brushwork, and elements of design. There will be a strong emphasis on making your paintings more three-dimensional, using a limited palette. Paint from observation as well as from instructor’s photos or your own.

The instructor’s comments on her alla prima method: My painting technique, alla prima, means all at once or wet on wet. I start and finish the painting in one sitting. That means no layering or underpainting. I paint directly from observation and one brush stroke at a time. 

 *The instructor works primarily in oil but welcomes acrylic artists.
