José DAOUDAL was born in 1954 and became a landscape painter, starting with oil painting at the age of 20.

It was in his Finistère that he had his first contacts with painting from his childhood in the studio of the painter RAVALLEC where he came on Friday market day to breathe the scent of turpentine while watching the master at work behind his easel.

Later, as a teenager, he discovered in Pont Aven the landscape painters SAVIGNY, COULIOU and many others who motivated him to work  otdoor.

During one of his first exhibitions, he met the painter TOFFOLI who encouraged and advised him.

After having practiced in oil and watercolor, it is the revelation of pastel by discovering during an exhibition, the magnificent work of the painter and sculptor Jacques COQUILLAY; it is then decided, he will be himself a pastel artist.


His first pleinair paintings confirmed his attraction to this technique, which allowed him to quickly catch the fleetingness of light. For several years, he pastellized the lights of Brittany and settled in 2003 in the Rhuys peninsula where he painted, his easel planted in the countryside whatever the season.


He then meets the master Pastellist CHRIS with whom he works on still life and benefits from his advice.

His exhibitions were successful  and he won numerous regional and national awards. His pastels are now hung by numerous French and foreign collectors.

In October 2019 during a report for the  Pratique des Arts magazine, (n ° 149), he started again  pleinair  oilpainting with his painter friend Xavier Kosmalki after a twenty years hiatus .

José DAOUDAL participates in many exhibitions and exhibits permanently in several galleries:

Sarzeau, Quiberon, Vannes, Laval and in his studio in Penvins.

José DAOUDAL is a GRECI MARINO Academician in the Arts section , Associate of the TAYLOR FOUNDATION and  French Pastel  Society member.
