Experience the power of warms and cools, complementaries, harmony, edges, shape-quality, variety, simplifying, loosening brushwork, elements of design, elements of light and shadow, the power of suggestion and seeing in terms of mass and shape relationships. There will be a strong emphasis on making your paintings more three-dimensional. Paint from supplied 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.
