Painting the Nude Alla Prima
I painted this nude during my class with Romel de la Torre at Scottsdale Artists School on the fourth and fifth day of class. It was a challenge to me because I never get the opportunity to paint or draw the figure from life for an extended period. I have attended a few life drawing sessions but they are nothing like rendering in paint. So much goes into the painting process that must be planned and thought about, whereas a drawing is flexible and easily adjusted.
Our beautiful model really liked my painting. She kept posting pictures of the face on her Instagram feed and then she contacted me after I came home about purchasing it.
