Glossary of Printing Terms:
Alla Prima

A term derived from Italian, meaning “at the first”.

It references a technique in which the finished painting is completed in one application of the paint, usually oil, and usually in one session or a short period of time. The result tends to be work that is smooth appearing.

Alla Prima is the opposite method of creating a painting by layering coats of paint, with each coat given drying time before the next application
