This is a quick painting done by using alla prima technic.Alla prima  also called wet-on-wet technic is used mostly in oil painting. In which layer of wet paint applied to previously administered layer of wet paint. this technique required fast way of working, because the worked has to be finished before the first layers have dried .
Traditionally, a new layer of oil-based paint is applied to most parts of a painting only after allowing previous layer to dry completely this drying process can take from several days to several weeks, depending on the thickness of paint. In contrast, work performed using " alla prima " can be carried out one or more sessions( depending on the types of paint used their respective drying times). and it is common for such a work to be finished in only one session or " sitting".
