Autumn Alla Prima

October 29, 2016

 

9 x 12  We've had the wettest October on record here in the Pacific Northwest, but the other day the sun came out in all it's glory and out I ran to capture the fall colors at Battlepoint Park here on

Bainbridge Island.  Using gouache again as my medium, I did this painting in about two hours.  In Italian, "alla prima" means "at first attempt."  My daughter likes my paintings most when done this way--no overworking in the studio when I get it home--however tempting this is to many artists.  It's taking all my powers to NOT go in and brighten a little here, correct a little there, add a few ducks everywhere...!!!

I guess I'd better sign it.   Happy Fall.
