Alla prima painting
|Alla prima painting
Alla prima painting, also known as "wet-on-wet" painting, is a technique where an artwork is completed in one session while the paint is still wet. Artists work quickly and directly, layering wet paint on top of wet paint. This method allows for a spontaneous and fresh approach, as there is limited time for corrections or revisions. Alla prima painting is often associated with oil painting and is favored for its ability to capture vibrant colors, soft transitions, and an immediate sense of energy in the artwork.
