First Life Drawing Class - Gesture Drawing

First Life Drawing Class was doing Gesture Drawing at the Elizabeth Guzsely Gallery. We explored movement of the model in space, as we looked for a sense of the overall form and a way to suggest the essential feeling.
Marks had to be quick and deliberate to sum up the pose.  We tried to show different emotions in 5 to 30 seconds!? Yep! It sounds bizarre to do a sketch that quickly, but the sense of urgency it creates adds great energy to the drawing. You haven't got time to think about unimportant details.

Below is a sample done by me on the night.  We had nine artists attend and I wish I had photos of their drawings to show as they did so much better than myself!  Will try to get some to show after next weeks class which will cover contour drawing and perspective.
