I have been working on some alla-prima studies, which is a more direct wet into wet painting technique, I work this way mostly on location when doing plein air work / landscapes but it is a good approach in the studio also. It allows you to apply paint in a looser and often more expressive, direct way. Plus there is a lot of instant gratification in this method.
