Portrait Painting in Oils
Traditional Art
Hello there, it's a great pleasure to share with you my thoughts and approach to portrait painting. Either you are a begginner, an intermediate or more advanced, I hope you find this article useful and inspiring to some degree. Besides, portraits seldom give us a break, right?  
Defining Alla Prima
In this tutorial we will explore the alla prima approach. So, what is "alla prima"? Alla prima is an Italian term meaning at first attempt. In other words it's a direct, wet on wet painting method, using one layer of paint. If the scale allows it then the painting is done before the paint starts to dry. If it's a large painting then you're forced to paint it in parts in the same manner.
Now, this is one way to do it but it doesn't mean it's the only way or the best way to go with it. 
But no matter our approach we have to be disciplined. So let's try some of that!

Mad eye sketch
Though the idea of a an old man with a magical eye that can see through clothing in a school full of teenagers
is rather alarming, still...Coolest character in the series. 

I have been re reading Goblet of Fire and had some fun warming up before work.

PS: Yes, I am aware fo the true identity of Mad Eye during GoF. Yet still, An enemy spy infiltrating the safest builidng in all of britain. Pretty bad.

Another take of this character I did in 2012.
