Assignment 3

Still Life

Conclude CPC201 by completing an alla prima still life, utilizing any necessary layering to make a successful painting in one day. There are no stipulations on the number of objects, but begin with a canvas between 8x10” and 12x16”. Work in the method of the master being studied, and utilize brush application to achieve the same stylization. The color palette may be full or limited, but final colors must be believable. The instructor painting below is an example of a 3-hour alla prima painting on a 12x16” oil primed linen canvas.
