PAINTING THE CLASSICAL PORTRAIT FROM LIFE

Studio Paradiso is extremely proud to offer the arts community with the opportunity to study with contemporary master and internationally renowned instructor working with the Classical Tradition of still-life and portrait oil painting, David Gray.

In this intensive 4-day program, David will take you step-by-step through his 4 stage process of building a portrait from life. From underdrawing to final glazes, learn the tips and tools needed to achieve an accurate likeness in oil.

The fundamental skills emphasized in this class will be drawing, value and color relationships, achieving a sense of three-dimensional form, and paint handling.

LESSON PLAN
Day 1 — Underdrawing. I teach methods and thought processes of how to construct the underlying drawing of your subject on your painting support (your canvas or panel).
Day 2 -- Color Study and Underpainting. We will discuss some basic color theory and mixing. We will create a color poster study to help us work out our major color concerns before launching into
our portrait. We will also apply a thin layer of oil color onto the drawing in preparation for day three.
Day 3 — Overpainting — This is the real business of painting where I show you how to paint your subject region by region; bringing each area to a finish before moving on. Among other things we
will discuss paint handling, basic color mixing and turning form.
Day 4 — Glazing and Continuing the Overpainting. On this day I will show you how to glaze and make minor adjustments as necessary. We will also continue to work on the overpainting.
