Basic Color in Alla Prima Still Life Painting (ONLINE) IN 604SL_ON
with Christine Lafuente
This oil-painting course focuses on learning a series of limited and full palettes, mixing for direct painting, and alla prima or wet-into-wet paint-handling. Color concepts such as tone, temperature, saturation, and atmosphere will be explored in each palette. Students will be guided through a series of focused procedures: analyzing the pigments of each palette, palette organization, mixing color, composing a painting, establishing a tonal design, applying large color masses, and using principles of oil viscosity to build form with wet-into-wet paint-handling. The class will consist of lecture and demonstration on Zoom, group critique, and independent studio practice. Students will paint from observation using their own still life arrangement.
