A New Alla Prima Oil Painting

Silver & Fig
6 x 6 Oil, alla prima

Hello everyone!  I painted this one today alla prima, in one sitting.  I didn't record it though.  It wasn't my intention to paint alla prima today, but once I started I got lost in my work and kept on until it was done.  Had I known I would paint it alla prima, I definitely would've recorded this.

I love these quick little alla prima pieces.  They can be challenging.  Working in wet paint doesn't always turn out the way you want it to so each time is a new challenge.  It's very satisfying when it goes well and you end up with work you're happy with, as I am with this one.

My studio also has a wildlife art piece on my easel.  I started it the other day and it's a larger work that will take more time and will require a lot of layers and then detailing.  It's been a long time since I've done wildlife but I've had the itch lately, especially with birds.  I think I might start incorporating more birds in my still life work too . . .

Hope you enjoyed this one, and if you did, it is now up on eBay for auction.  I will be holding auctions for a little while again but I'm not certain for how long, so do not miss out on the chance to own original art work  for low prices! It's a great way to collect.  I don't sell my work for this low, so don't miss out!

I'll be back soon but until then, I hope you all take care.  :-)
