Jason Tremlett 'Alla Prima' Solo Exhibition at Patisserie Cafe

Currently on show 2 minutes from the studio is a small scale solo exhibition of works by Jason Tremlett at the lovely Patisserie Lewes Cafe.

This exhibition presents a series of small oil sketches painted Alla Prima directly from life. A collection composed of still life compositions, figure studies and landscapes predominantly from the surrounding Sussex landscape where the artist lives and works.

The term ‘Alla Prima’ is derived from an Italian phrase meaning ‘at first attempt’, it is also known as ‘direct painting’, ‘au premier coup’, and is a one-layer painting technique in which the painting (usually painted from life) is completed in one sitting or while the paint is still wet.

 Running from 9th November -7th December 2018
