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.
Out early this morning to Surf Drive Beach, a little further down the beach on the sand instead of from the parking lot. 9"x12" oil on stretched canvas.
