While Paint is Drying

"Mandarin Orange" 5 x 7" oil on board

While I'm waiting for paint to dry on some of my more involved paintings I thought I would try a small alla prima painting. Alla prima just means no layers, painted directly onto canvas or board. In this case I did have the canvas toned with a peachy, umber-y color.

I'm not an alla prima painter or really an oil painter for that matter....but I rather like the freshness of the approach and the chance to see the brush strokes.

My studio mate, June, and I decided we need to do these every day we paint as a warmup. The cost of these daily paintings will be minimal ($18.00 includes shipping) and available for purchase on my Etsy Shop. Click here to purchase this painting.
