Today's Gestures


My first gesture drawings using the photo supplied by Sonni at the Wet Canvas Figure Forum workshop. These are 30 second sketches approximately as I don't have a 30 second timer. Gestures are done to get the rhythm or flow of the body, to describe action/activity. Will continue to practice using the same photo, then reversed photo. Plus, will do other gestures from different photos or from life when given the opportunity. I have never attended a life drawing class. Maybe someday!

Ann...these are great! You really should get into a life drawing class or drop in class--you will LOVE it..I guarantee it! Not to mention you'll have an advantage by studying anatomy in advance like you're doing here. If you take a class/drop in session you will not regret it!

Celeste, Cindi and Rhonda, thank you all for stopping by the blog and your suggestions to attend a life drawing class. The nearest one would be an hour's drive and no doubt would be worth it. I know there is a drop-in session every Friday but have never attended.
