ALLA PRIMA
(pronounced ah-la pree-ma) - Italian term, meaning to paint on canvas or other ground directly, in full, opaque colour, without any preliminary drawing or underpainting done first. (Underpainting is often done to establish the larger masses of the composition, or to establish tonal values (lights and darks)).
