Time: 10am - 5pm
Tutor: Lizet Dingemans
Cost: £200

Join tutor and alla prima artist Lizet Dingemans and learn to paint the alla prima still life over two days.

'Alla prima' literally means 'in one go'. Whether your ultimate goal is to paint portraits, figures, still lifes or landscapes, painting an alla prima still life is the perfect way to learn to handle oil paint or to improve your painting skills. This course is suitable for beginners and intermediate painters alike.

In this course, you will paint two different works using the objects and composition of your choice, using alla prima or wet-into-wet techniques. Still life is a great way to explore composition and paint handling without the distractions of a life model. It's a great way of getting creative with your own compositions!

In this two-day class, you will learn everything you need to know about oil painting (from brushes, to paints, mediums, and solvents). You can expect to come away from this course with two finished paintings and a wealth of knowledge. Under Lizet’s guidance, you will gain the confidence and knowledge you need to carry on your journey as a painter.
