Classical portrait painting - a Master Class with David Gray

For the seventh consecutive year, Atelier Nadaï is immensely pleased to receive internationally renowned award-winning artist, David Gray, who will come to teach his remarkable oil painting techniques at our school.  This class will really benefit students who have a firm grasp of drawing and oil painting basics, and who wish to take their classical portrait painting techniques to the next level.

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 evoke 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.

For those who wish to continue their exploration of classical painting techniques of the old masters, this class is offered back-to-back with the still life workshop that David Gray will be teaching at our atelier.  Both courses will provide a great opportunity to study with David Gray, who is not only an accomplished artist but also a very generous instructor. 
 

 

Application


David Gray's words:  "In my workshops I teach the application of the painting medium as I apply it in my own professional work. Though I strive to keep the class fun and upbeat, we move fast and cover a LOT of material in a short amount of time. Note taking is highly recommended!"

Join us in beautiful southwest France and immerse yourself completely in classical portrait painting during this 5-day intensive workshop!
