Do you have a painting, well PARTS of a painting that you just love with another part in the same painting that just doesn’t  do it?

I Love to teach how to do a makeover of a painting that you want to be invigorated, infused with chance and multilayers of depth, while still maintaining  the PARTS YOU LOVE.

Some of my best painting are the one I have painted “over”/make over.

Our schedule calls for a swift work over with new techniques the first day followed by a pulling together of a new work the second day.

“It can be done!”

• medium of  choice, brushes and tools, sandpaper, cold  wax (optional), palette knives, paper towels, rags.

• Paint Sticks

Anne Leveque is a multifaceted Artist

Having first trained and performed as a professional Dancer, then published as Writer/Director and currently, since 25 yrs, a Painter, she has lived her life in the arena of Fine Arts.

Dance provided the discipline necessary for everything else in life and provided her the greatest fulfillment and achievement.

Writing expanded the focus and depth of expression through writing plays in conjunction with the Honolulu Symphony. Poetry often accompanies her paintings providing a glimpse into the layering and interplay of her inspiration.

Painting has taken her into a fully aesthetic and ascetic life of solitude, peace, and tranquility.

Additionally she has travelled the world and lived 10 yrs in Asia (2010-2016).

“To travel extensively internationally, is to understand humankind more fully and this has influenced my philosophy and painting profoundly.”
