Life Drawing and Painting alla prima - In Oil Paint

Alla Prima Painting creates a beautifully fresh and 'painterly' result through it's immediate layering of wet paint applied to previously administered layers of wet paint.

Fee: $165 for 5 hours tuition*.  

*Fee does not include canvas. I recommend a good quality canvas 50.8 x 76.2cm (20 x 30"), these can be purchased from Duthy Street on the day, or bring your own.

Fee does Include papers, pencils, charcoal for life drawing and live model wearing authentic antique Kimono.

During this workshop you will gain (or revisit) the skills, knowledge and drawing techniques needed for working from a live model.

You will then create a 'wet-on-wet' (Alla Prima) Oil painting from your life drawing. You gain or 're-visit' valuable drawing skills, you will also acquire all the techniques needed to fully realise your wet-on-wet, or alla prima painting. Experienced painters will have an opportunity to practice those methods and processes you may not have used in a while. 

 Beginners Professional (Langridge) Oil Kit: Seriously great value at $139.00
