Raw speed painting is akin to the “Alla Prima” method of traditional fine artists, in which there is no sketch or underpainting (which are found in Di Mattia’s paintings).

It is about using value, color, texture, and composition to create a compelling and narrative piece within a relatively narrow timeframe. The pieces usually have an “unpolished” appearance, which stresses the importance of every stroke made on the canvas, digital or otherwise.
