“I wanted to know I could achieve any effect that I could imagine. I wanted complete expressive freedom…” – David Langevin

David Langevin currently lives and paints in Kamloops, British Columbia.  He was born in the Eastern Townships of Quebec and began drawing and painting even before he stared school.

 After spending several years teaching art, David continues to lecture and give workshops on “The Craft of Painting.”

David’s painting style is somewhat unique. He uses an elaborate system of layers of transparent and translucent paint, called glazes and veils, as well as a variety of texture effects that create dramatic images of his subjects. Having studied the painting methods of his favourite historical painters like Da Vinci, Correggio, Titian, Caravaggio, Rueben, and Rembrandt, to name a few, he has developed a system of painting that is part Renaissance, part Canadian.

Students created their night skies using vibrant liquid watercolours. Black silhouettes of evergreen trees drew the viewer into their sparkling night skies.
