David Cheifetz inspires us all in this painting instructional video by showing us how he uses a palette knife to make his paintings “glow”
David is an internationally acclaimed and collected artist who continues to push the limits of contemporary realist oil painting.
“Reflecting the language of dreams, these dark, hyperrealistic tableaux suggest bizarre and intriguing narratives. Cheifetz paints alla prima, an oil painting technique in which wet paint is applied to previous layers of wet paint. He works without detailed underpainting or studies, creating atmosphere through prominent, expressive brushstrokes and strong chiaroscuro.”
David and his family live in Seattle.
