Contemporary Realism ~ Alla Prima Paintings ~
Alla prima is a direct, expressive painting process, completed in one session, wet-on-wet.
Love the strong red and gray!
Thank you! I loved painting Sade. I don't remember what color the backdrop was, but my main concern is always communicating the effect of the light. This series is under warm, artificial light. The blue gray on the right is the original tone.
Striking pose and my favorite so far!
Thanks, Cathyann. She was such a pleasure to paint! I love this one. Sade was very proud and elegant.
