Friday Night with Dave Rheaume – Smoke and Mirrors: Special Effects Painting

{submitted by Brent Arlitt}

The Club was fortunate to have David Rheaume demonstrate his unique painting style to members on Friday Feb 3. David has been specializing in creating Cityscapes inspired by early 20th century scenes. His technique frequently utilizes thin washes from a minimal palette of acrylic paint to create a mesmerizing dreamy effect that pulls observers into his 3D scenes.

David also showed how he creates scenes and how the light effects that he demonstrates develops into paintings with depth and interest.
