Alla Prima Portrait Painting 2-Day Workshop

This intensive workshop focuses on the alla prima method of portrait painting. Alla prima (or ‘at the first’) is a direct painting method where paint is applied wet-in-wet and the painting is completed in a single session.

Working with a limited colour palette, following Anders Zorn’s system, you will be shown a stepby- step process to portrait painting, working from a photo reference on day one, and then from life on day two. As well as pre-mixing colours and values on the palette, you will also mix on the canvas, wet-in-wet, and creating a more expressive and painterly portrait.

Some of the topics that will be covered include:

• Organising your palette, colour mixing, and colour systems

• Drawing, and finding the proportions that capture the initial impression of the model

• Understanding value and recreating light and shadow

• Brushwork techniques

• Refining the quality of edges
