Drawing techniques from a master!

Mau-Kun Yim learned to draw as the Old Masters did and believes that to render the essence of life in portrait drawing, one must continue to pursue the old ways. This philosophy and methodology relies on a holistic approach to observation, analysis and critical-thinking honed through time and patience.
  • Start with a solid foundation - Classical bust drawing is a must. These lessons aid in constructing volume in your drawing and introduce concepts of structure.
  • Move on to sketching - The best way to train your observation skills. Anatomy, value and state of mind are the focus of these lessons.
  • 12 step-by-step tutorials put it all together - Form and spirit combine along with more clearly defined details to bring life and dimension to your portraits.
  • An extensive gallery of beautifully and classically executed portraits, figures, sketches and busts serves as inspiration.
