Gesture Drawing

This is an example of two 30 second gesture drawings done on top of each other.

The challenge is to keep proportion in mind, but work fast, without pausing to measure. It is an excersize to loosen up your hand and eye in the beginning of class. It will also train you to see the bigger picture and not be distracted by details of a figure (which can be added in much later if you wish).


below you will find an embedded video with a demonstration of gesture drawing using a small artist mannequin
