What is Gesture Drawing and how to use it
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YaQ1YWeRnaYIn my class Dynamic Drawing, one of the drawing techniques we spend a lot of energy trying to master is Gesture Drawing. And It's something I use quite a lot in my work, to endeavor to give my figures more energy. The quick study of moving subjects is how I get people to learn it in class, because a key to good gesture is some degree of speed and getting away from a precious sense of getting things "right". Trying to draw someone moving, is a good way I think to do that. The clip I draw from is here https://youtu.be/a6pJf2otwv8 I'm drawing with a Berol Prismacolor 902 dank blue. Working very lightly, so i've boosted the contrast just now. And on smooth marker paper. Music for the last bit if "Angels Standing Guard 'round the Side of your Bed" by A Silver Mt. Zion off of 'He Has Left Us Alone, but Shafts of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner of Our Rooms…' Find more Dynamic Drawing instruction here! http://dd.salgoodsam.com/
