Here’s what awaits you in this video
If you dread struggling with the technical aspects of anatomy in your figure paintings and drawings … all those complicated bones and muscles … we have a solution!
Daniel Maidman shows you how to utilize your knowledge of anatomy, and then set it aside so you can tell a story about the living, breathing individuals in your drawings and paintings.
Because every step of an artist's journey requires good drawing skills, we are all on a lifelong quest to improve and perfect our own level of proficiency. Regardless of your personal style or the medium you use, excellent drawing is the foundation you need in order to achieve your artistic goals.
Not to worry, this is not a tedious anatomy class. Instead, this is a celebration of the human form!
Without the ability to draw well, you will be forever limited as a figurative artist. In this video, Daniel will not only help you break through your fear and hesitation of life drawing, he'll help you discover a newfound enjoyment for it that you’ve probably never experienced.
Like the masters, Daniel focuses on the depiction of body shapes and forms through the gentle sculpting of light and shadow.
He describes the goal for his drawings as lyrical realism… figures that are recognizably the real thing, but with a sense of poetic grace about them.
With Daniel’s instruction, you’ll gain new clarity and will soon be enhancing your art by applying the master touches Daniel reveals in this video.

Only have done a watch through and then plan on following along during the extended poses what I enjoyed the most were Daniel's comments during the long poses. His explanation of his process and philosophy of what it is to be an artist, and techniques he employs to renders his life drawings. I feel I will be doing many viewings to allow my brain to properly process and absorb all the information he departs. One particular segment I enjoyed was the interview afterwards. Daniel's comments were very frank and insightful.
I was extremely pleased with Daniel Maidman's approach to teaching and the quality of his straightforward, and personable instruction. I especially enjoyed how he produced his excellent work using simple tools, different pose lengths, and using a building block method that appealed to me. I highly recommend this video! Ken
I have never drawn or painted from a live model and it was informative when he did quick, rough sketches while he had the model strike different poses to warm up and then suggest to use them as presents. Interesting.
