This is my first alla prima, or close enough to it. I tried to go from start to finish, but there was a point where I had to stop, because it turned into a plate of soup I was stirring with a brush. I will go back in a few days and add the tweaks I want.
I was really trying to get the values right, and avoid fiddling with details.
I had a problem with the grass, because I could not achieve the saturation I wanted in the foreground, which makes me think the photo is manipulated out of the range of my paint.
The other problem I have is that I could not match the correct color for the tail. The tail is a stringy, hairy thing with the grass showing between the strands, and a pile of dung behind it, which I left out because it was oddly placed. I could not match it, and having changed the background, I painted myself into a corner. Lesson learned.
