Leanne Halls: Alla Prima - Art Collector

Leanne Halls, 'Winter Tangle, Lake Dobson', 2018, oil on linen 137x137cm. Courtesy of the artist and Colville Gallery, Tasmania.  Wet-on-wet, or alla prima (Italian, meaning at first attempt), is a painting technique, used mostly in oil painting, in which layers of wet paint are applied to previously administered layers of wet paint. This technique requires a fast way of working, because the work has to be finished before the first layers have dried.

Leanne trained at the Julian Ashton School, Sydney and also studied traditional Japanese techniques, disciplines which have strengthened her awareness and response to both light in the landscape and also to the importance reduction of composition bringing a focus to a work, highlighting a tree or an array of flowers or fruit.

Leanne has gained strong recognition through her works in landscape as well as still life works, being listed as Finalist in numerous awards including The Glover, Lloyd Rees Art Prize, and Eutick Memorial Still Life Prize.
