Langevin is often inspired by winter, seeing thousands of contrasting colours in the snow, each one as vibrant as the next. Its whiteness is only superficial; like water, snow takes on the tones of the sky, becoming at times pink, blue or green, while its luminosity is also affected in infinite ways by the changing seasons. When he was younger, Langevin would often paint in temperatures of –20 degrees, paint would freeze on his palette. He says now he knows better. Today, a wiser Langevin does his preliminary sketches outdoors and completes his canvas in comfort in his studio. When the warmer weather returns, he goes back to making direct sketches from nature of the landscapes he paints. Studio work brings its own difficulties, since the artist must rely on his imagination to recreate the colours and contours of the land. In painting outdoors, he is more aware of form and closer to the reality he wishes to interpret
