What is Alla Prima Portrait Painting?
Alla Prima (wet on wet) is a direct painting style where paint is applied wet on wet without letting earlier layer dries. In Italian, the “alla prima” term means “at first attempt”. Originally, Alla Prima is a technique used to paint in one session only to give out a spontaneous and fresh result.
This style was most popular during the Impressionism art movement – an art movement taken place in the 19th century. Prior to the rise of alla prima, artists commonly used layering approach. Artists let each layer dry before applying the next one, which is very time-consuming. With Alla Prima, the paint will stay fresh and easily capture the fleeting of light and vibrant colour of the environment.
