Pastels are pigments that are
compressed with inert binders into
chalk-like sticks or pencils.  
Alla Prima means that the painting
was done all in one setting.  If the
scene is outdoors and the artist paints
the scene on location, it is called En
Plein Air.
Indirect is a layered method of oil
painting in which one layer dries before
the next layer is applied.  The paint is
usually kept thinner giving a softer
look to the painting and there is
greater ability to create fine detail.
