The spark of youth
Artwork and story from Ken Maharajah
I’m a people painter with a passion for life drawing. Currently specialising in flamenco. My life is built around my art.
I realise, after a few lessons on the anatomy course my figures were proportionally incorrect. Learning about the ‘landmarks’ of the body, gave me the vital reference points to check the accuracy. It’s amazing how quickly I now see an atomically error and importantly why it’s wrong.
It will be an accomplishment to win the Drawing Academy course since everybody concerned has the human forms accurate depiction at heart. This portrait has not only aimed for facial accuracy but personality of the person.
