This request was from @sofieasheim on Instagram. I took the opportunity to paint the first of a new series of mini alla primas I’m doing. I picked up some cheap 5″ x 7″ canvas boards from The Works which I thought would be great for practicing without using too much paint.
Alla prima, in case you don’t know, is painted all in one session. This is also known as wet-in-wet as the paint doesn’t have a chance to dry. This is completely different to the other common method of underpainting followed by many layers of glazes (transparent paint).
