Alla Prima Painting: Still Life & The Figure with David Shevlino

Register by August 15, 2019.

This class is about painting alla prima into wet) and the techniques used to create a fresh, direct response to our subjects.  

Days one and two, will focus on the still life.  
Days three and four, will focus on the figure.

By learning to simplify form, values and color, we begin to interpret and break down our subjects into more understandable tones and shapes instead of becoming distracted by details.  This helps us to paint our subjects with greater clarity and directness. This class will be particularly helpful to students who wish to paint more loosely and to paint their subject with greater economy.
