Alla Prima

The Gallery’s annual oil exhibition featuring Members of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI) and carefully selected artists using this popular and diverse medium.

‘Alla Prima’ is a technique ideal for painting evasive light as quickly as possible particularly to capture the play of light in landscape painting at a specific time of day. Some famous artists who made use of this technique were Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890) and Claude Monet (1840—1926).
