The West Kootenay Chapter of the FCA is excited to be hosting a 3-day Alla Prima Oil Painting workshop April 22-24 with Ingrid Christensen. This workshop, “The Still Life Laboratory” will focus on alla prima oil painting.
Join Ingrid for 3 days of learning and experimentation in the still life lab. Working alla prima, you’ll learn to compose and paint a dynamic composition wet-in-wet. You’ll discover what it takes to turn ordinary objects into extraordinary paintings.
This workshop will focus on composition, colour and the different methods for starting a painting, from logical and methodical to intuitive and abstract. Ingrid’s bold and colourful paintings have won honours and awards in both national and international exhibitions. View Ingrid’s website at www.icartstudios.com
