Small Daily Flower Paintings I am currently following the discipline of 'daily painting'. Almost every day, I produce a painting ‘alla prima’, which means “at the first’ or done in one sitting. This kind of direct, “wet on wet” oil painting gives a loose and spontaneous look. I try to keep the painting as fresh as the flowers or fruits or vegetables that I'm inspired to capture on canvas. 6" x 6" or 5" x 7" are $150.
