Alla Prima Painting

For around a year I have been teaching myself this technique to paint wet in wet more effectively so that I can work outdoors and complete a piece in a day, an afternoon! These examples are panels that are 25cm x 40cm and are perfect for this timescale.

Using the same method I managed to paint a poppy field with trees, grasses and flowers with this technique, the point is that the paint doesn’t dry, you must be using wet paint on wet paint.

I like to learn and to try new things and develop techniques. I learned many things while doing this so was a very good experience
