Merry Christmas: December Opus Demo

I want to wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy New Years, and an all around wonderful holiday season. The Ala Prima painting demo at Opus on Dec 19th was a lot of fun, thank you for everyone who attended the demo, and for all the helpful staff of Opus for facilitating the event. Here are some of the pictures of our Christmas bouquet coming to life on canvas with oil paint at the demo.

Method Ala Prima is my favorite method of painting for many years. It takes one inspired moment and some concentration to be able to put all your knowledge and expression in one session. And it is worth trying. This is mostly used for doing studies for longer piece, searching for right color combinations or composition. I like freshness and life of this studies a lot!
