This painting has been completed "alla prima."
In Italian, the term "alla prima" means "at first attempt". In other words, the paintings are completed in a single session, on location, without further layers or refinements in the studio. Alla prima paintings tend more toward impressionistic than realistic, while the subjects are definitely recognizable.
For those who say "I can't afford one of your paintings right now" I created the Alla Prima line... paintings done on location in one sitting. Today's is extra budget friendly - a little 4"x4" oil on gallery wrap canvas (1-1/2" deep). Chapoquoit Beach.
