Gesture drawings

gesture drawings 1

Now that I’m briefed by Christeen and Bill as to what gesture drawing is (i.e. fast, loose drawings that focus on the gesture of a person rather than on any details), I thought I’d have a go.

Now that I look at these drawings again, I realise I’ve managed my usual trick of making the figure’s legs too short.  Now, I know this is probably because I have short legs in proportion to the rest of me, but you’d think I’d learn, wouldn’t you?

By the way – I’ve just finished a sketchbook that I started on 2 June last year.  Let’s see if I can fill the next one a bit faster.  🙂

  1. I think you did a wonderful job on these. I don’t think the legs are too short, but maybe that’s because I’m short, too. lol! The more you do gestures, the better you will become at catching motion and even your every day sketching will come with more ease. Keep up the wonderful work!

  2. I think these are awesome! And I like the way you did a dab of grey on them rather than just line drawings. VERY nice! 🙂

  3. These are really great. That’s a good idea to use photos for the practice. They’ll stay in the pose for as long as you need to get them right. I think you did a womderful job on these.
