Alla Prima

Around Every Corner Is a Spectacle, Needing Only to be Perceived to Uplift Us

These Alla Prima paintings span a few decades from 1977 til now.

My Alla Prima paintings are small to mid-sized paintings that are direct from life, wet on wet, and/or done in one sitting. Where my Definitive Works are like Operas, these are more like Etudes, exploring one visual concept or an impression done relatively quickly. Most of them are Plein Air landscapes and still lifes, with some interiors and smaller figurative works. I have used a series of them to recalibrate my studio lights, to reexamine lighting the subjects, to radically explore color theories, and to test my skills at painting tattooed people. I like to work on 3 to 9 works and then move on to another new discovery.
