Event description

Description

Alla Prima painting, or wet into wet, single session painting is a stimulating method which teaches you to be present in every brush stroke, focusing on only the essentials, ultimately teaching you great dexterity and control. 

With demonstration and (gentle - use this word if you think the word "critique" alone will be off putting) critique Felicia will challenge you to correctly observe and record the fundamentals: shapes, values, edges and color. You will paint  with the Zorn Palette, a limited primary color palette that allows for easier color harmony by eliminating the need to choose between cool or warm versions of each primary.  

“Do studies, not pictures. Know when you are licked - start another. Be alive, stop when your interest is lost. Put off finish - make a lot of starts. It is so hard and so long before a student comes to a realization that these few large simple spots in right relations are the most important things in the study of painting. They are the fundamentals of all painting. Paint the color tones as they come against each other, and make them sing, vibrate.”
—Charles W. Hawthorne , “Hawthorne on Painting”-
