Alla Prima in Terra Rosa

Alla Prima in Terra Rosa

 

Inspired by Richard Schmid’s “Alla Prima” book, yesterday I had fun doing this “Alla Prima in Terra Rosa”.  I loved the way the face emerges from the board.  Our model, Grace, thought she ought to be writing an 18th century novel with that mystical look and in those sepia tones.  Much fun! 

Am looking forward to doing another alla prima portrait today with a new model.
