Gesture Life Drawings

Gesture Life Drawings, Watercolor Crayons and Water on Bond Paper, 18 x 24This one is about a third of a page,

As is this one...A gesture drawing is very quick, and meant to capture the essence, especially the motion through space, of the subject. Three to five minutes were given for each of these poses. Gesture drawings are most often done as a warm up to a more lengthy study. Stay tuned for the longer pose!

These are the sketches I was remembering the other day. Inspiring! "I love your ability to catch the gesture so eloquently."
