As always it is my kids that kick me into gear. I started this blog as a class assignment and have let it sit idle until today. Sarah started a blog as a vehicle for her writing career. Why aren’t I doing the same for my artistic endeavors? I am now. This semester I am taking an oil painting class. We did a few alla prima (paintings done in one session, in this case 3 hours or less) painting in class that I am pleased with. They aren’t perfect, but this was a first attempt it always takes some practice to get it right. I can’t wait to do more on my own.
The first was done using brushes, the second only palette knives and the third a combination of the two, although I leaned more heavily on the brushes.
