The Alla Prima Portrait

Benavides image5

with Chris Benavides

Alla Prima is Italian for, “At the first.” The objective in the Alla Prima portrait is to complete a painting in one 2-1/2 to 3 hour sitting. This style of painting is direct and done without glazing. Alla Prima painting is often typified with bold and painterly brushwork. Painting can be complicated as it is, and painting a portrait can be particularly difficult unless one has a logical method or system from which to start and proceed. Chris will demonstrate 2 starting methods from which one can more successfully navigate and avoid the many stumbling blocks that aspiring painters often encounter when attempting portraits. He will demonstrate one method each morning and will offer individual guidance to students each afternoon as they complete their own paintings. There will be a one hour lunch break.
