This is from last week's alla prima still life class. We are learning different methods available to start an alla prima painting --- last week was value blocking, starting with a very dark-valued neutral. I completed this very quickly and really like the resulting freshness. I learned a lot - squint, simplify, paint shapes not things, squint again. Check out my classmates great take on the same set-up - for Stephen Parker, click here and for Trish Siegel, click here.

Mitzi, this is absolutely beautiful. I didn't get a very close look at it in class, but it is wonderful. Very loose and playful, and fantastic color.
