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!

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!
