RUTH FITTON PORTRAITS
Alla Prima Portrait Studies
'Alla Prima is a term describing paintings which are completed in one go. This gives the painting a feeling of freshness and immediacy. I often paint rapid portrait studies which are completed in 2-4 hours. I love the challenge of the time constraint, and the bold way of painting which results from it.'
