Painting the figure presents Damian with the greatest and most rewarding challenge of all. Emotions, mystery and beauty are powerfully articulated through the body and the face. Attempting to capture some of these aspects, besides merely a likeness, is what generally leads the artist to total despair or to rapture. Sketching charcoal nudes and portraits in life-drawing class is one of Damian’s favourite disciplines, using traditional techniques to keep on practicing.
