Alla Prima Study
Recently, I have been painting with 5 other artists in Stowe, VT. We meet at Dee Macy,s studio which is large enough to accomodate all of the easels, painting supplies and a model. The model takes a pose, which is repeated for 3 hours. In that time, we all paint like crazy. This is the result of one of those sessions. It is an alla prima oil of my daughter's Mother-in-Law, Nancy. This is one way to solve the expense of hiring a model. All of the artists pitch in to pay the modeling fee. This would have been one that I would have loved to work on just a little longer. Perhaps, we can get the model to pose again, but it was a fun study, at any rate.
