Alla Prima: Painting the figure will cover posing the figure model, lighting, materials and an exciting demonstration of the alla prima method.
Alla prima refers to a direct painting approach where paint is applied wet on wet without letting earlier layers dry. In Italian, the term alla prima means "at first attempt". Paintings created in this approach are usually completed within a single session.
"Clayton Beck is the best Alla Prima painter of the figure alive today" - Richard Schmid, artist and author.
This event through Sharing Arts is connected to "A Brush with High Street", a three month exhibit of nationally known contemporary realist artists at the Fry Fine Art Gallery in Peterborough to open June 5th - August 30th 2020.
