The portraits below are completed using the alla prima direct method, Italian for "at once", which simply means the painting is completed in one sitting. I work from live models in my studio or events and find so much joy as well as the challenge completing these portraits. Sizes below range 16''x20-24’’x 30''. Enjoy!
