Carol’s method is to paint “alla prima” or “wet onto wet”; the painting is completed while the paint is still wet. This requires you to work fast! Carol says it allows you to blend from your “islands” (main subject) into your “oceans” (background). And, when things don’t work out as planned (which almost NEVER happens! 😉 ), you can wipe it away!
Several weeks ago I met with local artist friends Brenda Boylan, Jo Reimer, and Celeste Bergin. Joining us from Colorado, was dear friend, Art Biz Coach, Alyson B. Stanfield, for a wonderful breakfast at The Benson Hotel.
” Alyson B. Stanfield is an art business consultant and author of I’d Rather Be in the Studio: The Artist’s No-Excuse Guide to Self-Promotion. She helps artists gain more recognition, organize their businesses, and sell more art at ArtBizCoach.com.”
I have been following her since 2008, taken her online classes, I keep reading her book (over and over), and gain insight and understanding from her weekly blog posts. I highly recommend that you check out Art Biz Coach!
