Painting the Classical Portrait from life
April 30 – May 11, 2018 (10 days Intensive)
Course fee: €1500

David Gray invites you to register for this highly informative course on classical oil painting techniques.

We will begin this class with a series of short studies in both monochrome and full color oil paint in order to better understand the larger forms of the head structure. Armed with essential knowledge gained in the first few days of study we will endeavor to complete a portrait in the remaining bulk of the time. I will teach my layered method involving underdrawing, underpainting, overpainting, and glazing. This study will also include some information on color mixing and color theory as it relates to light and form.


INSTRUCTION: Demos and on the easel critiques. 
CLASS HOURS: 9am to 4pm with lunch at 12 noon. Classes are 6 hours a day, five days a week, Monday to Friday.
