David Gray takes you though his entire process in the 6 hour instructional video.  He starts with the drawing then shows you how he does his “underpainting.”   Next he shows you how to paint the overpainting with explanations on creating skin tones.    His final step is glazing which he says brings the painting to life.   It’s amazing to watch David paint his portraits that have become so recognizable.

David’s signature style reveals a personal and contemporary expression of beauty and order which pays homage to the Classical Tradition in its craftsmanship. Collectors of David’s work often relate that his painting provoke a sense of peace, stillness, or a contemplative mood. His award winning works have been covered by major art publications including Southwest Art, Art of the West, and American Art Collector. David also teaches several workshops per year in portraiture and still life painting  throughout the United States and abroad.

“Whether he is painting still lifes or figures, Gray brings a deep knowledge of and respect for the masters that translates into an elegant minimalism on canvas or panel. His tonalist portraits usually focus solely on the head and shoulders, while his still lifes feature timeless objects such as copper pots and china teacups surrounded by generous doses of negative space.” 
–Bonnie Gangelhoff, Southwest Art Magazine

 “I’m not simply a “Realist”. I find in my best work, my subjects seem to hover somewhere between the visible natural realm and some place divine…”

–David Gray
