Course Description

This 1-day course is for oil and acrylic painters that want to learn the unique and brilliant layering techniques David Langevin uses to create his ‘animal portraits’. Just like With David’s landscape and ‘tree portraits’, he uses pure color effects and mixes directly on the surface using layers of transparent and opaques colors, and often painting into wet glazes.

Supply List

David will be discussing the materials used and show some techniques and procedures used in his art. He will be doing two painting demos of animals as well. It’s suggested you watch and ask questions during the course rather than try to paint along.

For those that would like to try to paint along with the demos, the ‘Emerging’ artist collection of paints by Tri-Art will give you all the colors you will need.

Instructor Bio

David Langevin wanted to be an artist from a very young age and so when I graduated high school I went on to study Fine Arts in college and university. I did not learn a lot about how to be a better artist or painter, and they taught us nothing about the professional life of an artist and how to make a living in the trade.

After graduating university I spent years studying materials and techniques of painting and in particular, the methods of the Old Masters of the Renaissance and Baroque periods.

When I developed my courses and workshops for artists I decided that I would focus on teaching all of the stuff that I wanted to learn in school:  Being a master of my craft, and; understanding the strategies and skills required to make a living selling my art. I have also learned that the best way to learn almost any skill set is to learn directly from an accomplished professional in the field – a Master (or Sage).

Taking workshops and getting mentoring is the way to go for any artist wanting to be a better painter, and a more successful entrepreneur.
