The River

Oil Painting

Created by Dorothy Fagan
This vivid, impressionistic oil painting captures the feeling of being alive. This artist's joyful paintings are inspired by her travels on trails and beaches near her home in Virginia, to Italy, France, and across the U.S. Her technique is done with expressive color and loose, calligraphic brush strokes, in a wet-on-wet technique known as alla prima. Alla prima comes from Italian, literally meaning "at first attempt" and is loosely applied to any painting that is done in a direct, expressive style.

The edges of this deep gallery-wrapped canvas are painted with a neutral blue gray to complement the painting. It is wired to hang unframed.
