In direct painting, also known as alla prima, a work is completed in a single session while the paint is still wet. Direct 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. Using the Zorn palette, Felicia will challenge you to correctly observe and record the fundamentals: shapes, values, edges and color.

The workshop will begin each day with a painting demonstration and lecture of exercises that will break down the fundamentals. For the second half of each day, students will work from the model to create their own alla prima portrait painting. Each student will receive personal attention as they work, as well as handouts to aid them as they continue to practice this method after the completion of this workshop.

  “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”
