************************************************************************************************ Like the idea of getting a painting done all at once? Here’s where you can learn invaluable tools for tackling Alla Prima painting…the “At One Go “ method of painting…with confidence! David Lussier is masterful at unraveling the secrets of this challenging, and very satisfying way to paint!

David offers this quote: In his remarkable treatise In Praise of Painterly Painters, the late artist, author and teacher, Charles Movalli, wrote; “Painterly painters are surrounded by seeming contradictions. They finish by not finishing, include by leaving out, paint more by painting less. Their means are easy to see, the results, immediately felt.

How such seemingly insufficient means lead to these results is a mystery! But David believes that economy of stroke is within every painters grasp, if they are willing to approach the painting process with a ‘Less Is More’ mind set! You bring the mind set…he will show you the techniques!

Your goal with each painting will be to see your subject as shapes of color and value and not as individual objects. When you look at a subject this way, you can react quickly, making those confident marks on the canvas that are uniquely an expression of your individual self.

In this five day plein air workshop, you’ll explore in depth the method of Alla Prima painting. David will do a daily demonstration and and lead discussions on composition, design, value and how to capture light and atmosphere in your paintings. His individual attention will help you focus on developing your “painter’s eye” and the skills to make your personal artistic statement.

Beginners to experienced artist are welcome. And should the weather at some point not cooperate, we can work right in our studio which has great views from its huge windows
