In this Masterclass we will carefully explore the classic method of Alla-Prima with an emphasis on modeling and finish.
Day 1 – A three-hour demonstration will be given, where student’s can watch the painting process, and hear the thought process which is involved to create a figurative work of art, quickly and with precision.
Day 1 – The latter portion of the first day will be devoted to creating an underpainting in one colour, focusing on composition, tonal-execution, anatomy and technique.
Day 2 - Will focus on an Alla-Prima painting approach which will allow students to compose a figurative painting with the inspiration of Tuscan Renaissance precision.
