Alla Prima Oil Painting Online


Dates & Times:
Saturdays 10am – 12pm, starting 25 March 2023

Format: Online / Zoom Course

Medium: Oil Paint

The alla prima painting method is a direct and immediate approach that involves completing the painting in one session. This method has almost become the standard by which modern and contemporary artists paint.

In this 5-week course, you will learn how to capture gesture, light and colour quickly, distilling the essence of any scene down to its fundamental parts and then representing them with speed. Brushwork plays a vital role in this type of painting, and you will be shown how to promote rhythm, interest and style through with a variety of brushstroke techniques. You will also learn many oil painting skills and techniques and how to avoid many common oil painting pitfalls.

Please note that there will be a one-week break during this course for Easter (10th-16th April). See full description below.
