Time lapse, alla prima demo of a nude female bust by Lisa Gloria. The demo took approximately 4 hours and was painted right on the white canvas in oil paint.
Painting alla prima is like doing monkey rolls in gym. It's sort of a hilarious terror-filled experience in which you're trying to organize your muscle memory with your mental list of must-have's. Some things fall by the side - I promise myself to remember them next time. Some things happen by happy accident - I loved the way the hair snapped together under the knife painting portion and the crazy blue abstract background.
I'd like some feedback - would you like to see these slower? Voiceover explanations? Closeups on specific portions?
