Piera 1-18-2010 #1

I'm still working on this pregnant Piera project – trying every medium and style that pops into my head during our weekly sittings. I'll upload one or two a day at the most, so as not to hog the main page. In this session, inspired by some of the work on dark paper that's been posted here lately, I used white prismacolor on black paper. My conclusion: tougher to get your draughtsmanship precise! But I liked the distortions this produced in the image. I hope it works for you.

About Daniel Maidman

Daniel Maidman was born in Toronto, Canada. He was raised in Toronto, Jerusalem, Washington, and Chicago.

Since attending college in North Carolina and Texas, Daniel Maidman has lived in Los Angeles and New York City. In Los Angeles, he set himself on a program to learn how to draw and paint the human figure. He attended life drawing workshops 2-3 times a week for eight years. As well, he spent two years working on an anatomical atlas based on human cadaver dissections in which he participated at Santa Monica College, under the guidance of Dr. Margarita Dell. Illustrations from his atlas are currently in use in the United States Army’s forensic field manual.

Since moving to New York, Daniel Maidman has sped up his painting schedule, while continuing to maintain his drawing skills through life drawing workshops at Spring Street Studio. Although he remains primarily self-taught, he has learned a good deal about color from conversations with Adam Miller.
