The Art of John Gray


Please click on any of the thumbnail paintings to view that painting, as a larger size, or the whole series of larger sized paintings.

Life Paintings

All of John's paintings have figures as subject, but he does not use models for them, rather he invents and improvises creating the figures for each painting from his imagination. His imagination however, is informed by years of life painting and drawing and these life paintings are some of the work done by him at the weekly life class at the Riverbank Studios over the past 20 years.

The time limit imposed by the life class, about two hours, has demanded a medium that is quick and fluid so John has used mostly oil and sometimes pastel to achieve in the small scale studies a vivacious and exited paint surface, that transfers to his major works.
