Massing in

Alla Prima - having fun

"A Studio Visit", Study - oil on  panel, 16x12
In recent months I've been going back to the old practice of doing studies before beginning larger works.  I find these paintings totally enjoyable for a number of reasons, the main one being that I am able to explore possibilities that I might not otherwise encounter, or risk taking, in a larger painting. The study allows the artist to solve potential problems and when I'm really fortunate, uncover something special. 
After a summer of plein air studies, I found myself pining to paint the figure. This study, "A Studio Visit", (16x12) was painted in preparation for my upcoming 1-Day Workshop, "Painting the Figure, From Life,  Alla Prima". 
I still have some workshop spaces open and I would love for you to join me for a challenging and fun day.
