Alla Prima “WOW”






Concetta specialises in the Alla Prima painting process which allow oil painters to make a painting in just one session and to find their style! Make a flower last forever – paint it! Recreate a master work in one sitting! Working alla prima (wet-into-wet) requires a clear understanding of the process of oil painting. Being able to create painting magic by manipulating the paint with techniques is the goal of any master artist. “WOW” allows an opportunity to express individual creativity. Studio alla prima instruction offers fixed variables (light and subject), making this program a step towards painting outdoors, where the scene and light are transient.
All are welcome to dive into the wet painting process!
