ANNE’S ARTISIC STYLE AND INTENT
“The feeling of painting is like the first wind catching the sail of my boat and in this very instance of the wind – or the brush – the day has instantly changed and the wind is at my back.” Anne Leveque
Huge abstract landscapes and non-objective work are Anne Leveque’s spatial inspirations for oil on canvas. Her long view / aim is to push through abstract landscapes towards non-objective work, the goal being absolutely the obliteration of all image as they might creep in as Leveque paints. If she can do this it frees the viewer to “see what they see.” Throughout the process of up to 30 layers, Leveque is ever-mindful of leaving no recognizable imposed image.
Yes, it’s possible to paint lean over fat! The code has been cracked!!
· You will learn how to utilize acrylic paints with oil paints in the same painting, adding brilliancy, luminosity and depth to your original acrylic or oil painting.
· The process will be fat over lean, lean over fat, over and over, layering with full demos AND special materials discovered for each step.
Bring one ALREADY PAINTED large canvas about 36 x 48 which we will recreate/MAKE OVER using fat over lean, lean over fat and other chemical techniques. The makeover will retain the parts you already love and augment the part you want to recreate.
Also bring one or two BLANK large canvases about 36×48 which we will use to create a new work using fat over lean, lean over fat.
If you need to go with smaller canvases, bring as large as you have. Cradle board also works.
