Art in the Open

This past Saturday I took part in Philadelphia’s “Art in the Open” project. Giovanni Casadei taught a landscape painting class in the a la prima style. This method teaches to finish an oil painting in one sitting. Bartram’s Gardens provided the perfect setting for numerous inspirational views of gardens, ponds, the cityscape and the river. Even though the temperature was in the eighties, being outdoors was a lovely experience.

Here’s some photo’s of Giovanni demonstrating the a la prima technique.
