Welcome to DG Paints (formerly DG Oil Painting Techniques). My name is David Gray. I’ve been painting professionally since 1997 and full time since late 2002. I also teach workshops on oil painting portraiture and still life throughout the United States and abroad. To view my comprehensive CV please click this LINK.
I started this blog to help the learning painter. It can also be used as supplemental material by my students. Here, I expand a little on some of my thought processes on making a picture. Though my expertise is in oil painting, I believe any pictorial artist using any medium and seeks a naturalistic/realistic approach may benefit from the information herein.
This blog may also contain other aspects of the artist life, outside of mere technique. Here I may muse on what else goes on inside my mind, and the minds of others of the artistic stripe.
Thank you for visiting. You may view my regular website at DavidGrayArt.com.
Best wishes and happy painting!
