The Fine Art of Alan Douglas Ray

I am a traditional oil painter with a passion for still life, portraiture and figures. Inspired by the Old Masters, my paintings tend to depict quiet, private places with an air of mystery and intrigue.

I paint in the style of classical realism, a form of representational art that exhibits a preference for order, beauty, harmony and completeness, and the representation of nature based on direct observation using traditional methods.
