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.

This began as a landscape in my backyard then went off on its own. Playing with color and deep texture. Caught up in the process. I will go back to the beach tomorrow. I promise. For tonight - something … what adjective would you suggest? 7”x5” oil on board.
