Introduction 

 

The purpose of this workshop is to learn Alla Prima painting technique in an open-air environment. The comprehension of fundamental principles is the main goal, which includes color mixing, creating a "clean" color palette and application of pigments. Constantly changing landscape provides conditions in which, one learns to be precise and quick in developing the painting.  

This course provides students with the opportunity to paint the most picturesque views of Florence, learning about Alla Prima technique. The workshop's key objectives are:

 

  • Learning about rules of perspectives, proportions, “clean” color palette, and aerial perspective
