A Still Life Painting Demonstration

A still life alla prima demonstration in oils in Kevin McSherry’s Studio

An alla prima still life of a silver bowl and lemon slice on white, against a grey and deep red background. This video takes you through the composition, drawing, blocking-in stage and up to the initial detailing stage. These are the most important parts of the painting process as they’re the foundation for everything that follows.

The whole process took about 2 hours but I’ve speeded up the video and removed any hesitations and inert parts. About 5 minutes.
