Alla Prima Painting

Join the Contest

Contest Rules

Alla Prima PaintingTo paint an image alla prima is to complete it, from start to finish, in one sitting. Doesn't matter if it's five minutes or five hours, it has to be done 'all at once.' This kind of painting allows for color mixing on canvas, and fast, loose brushwork that can result in fresh, spontaneous marks.

Must be paint or pastel. No pencils, ink, photography or computer art.

Any subject is fine. Nudity is fine but keep it artistic, please.

You can post up to five images. You can vote for as many as you like.


Submission Rules

Each participant may submit 5 images.
