Join us at the CCCA as Dominique Medici Instructs: “Alla Prima Portrait Painting”
A 3-day Workshop at CCCA Gallery, Friday, July 31 – Sunday, August 2, 2015

Do you love painting from life and connecting with what is directly in front you? Do you enjoy the challenge of trying to get a convincing likeness, fresh look and beautiful painting before the day is finished? If so, please come and join us for this 3 day portrait painting workshop!

Alla Prima or Direct Painting is a technique in which the drawing, tone, color, edge and brush strokes happen simultaneously. The painting is worked “wet into wet” and typically finished in one session. Great Masters of the past like Velasquez, Sargent and Zorn worked this way. It is a thrilling practice with endless scope for expression.

Dominique will demonstrate and give individual instruction each day. “I will also be painting with the class,” she says, “because I feel it is a valuable teaching method. “A picture is worth a thousand words”! Each day we will use the same model but paint a different pose. This will sharpen our observation and sensitivity to the model’s unique likeness, qualities and give us a greater 3 dimensional appreciation of form. My goal is that each of you will walk away from this workshop with confidence and a clear understanding of how to approach a subject with the Alla Prima technique.”
