    Talking Gestures!!!

    these are some recent gesture drawings, they are all about 1 to 2 minute poses. I go to figure drawing sessions twice a week every week. gesture drawings are my favorite because they place so much value on such a small amount of time. the originals are in a figure drawing show downtown.

    enjoy,

    I have gotten in the habit of using black prisma colored pencils(sharpened at both ends) on a 18x24 newsprint pad. for gestures i prefer to stand while drawing.

    Davi - Proud? . what you are perciving as pride is more of respect. respect for one of the most beautifull and complicated forms in the universe.
    For me, my gestures are an attempt to fuse the beauty of the shell with the wonder and life of the soul that orchastrates its movement.

    it is important to be confidant while making your strokes, but that confidence dosent stem out of pride it emerges form trust in ones abilities and knowledge of anatomy.

    there are no tricks to gestures they last only a few moments but take years of drawing to truly capture.

    I'm kind of bummed, as I look at these I'm realizing I haven't been doing as much life drawing as I should either.
    Admittidly these sketches are like 2 yrs old.
    Man its just tough with bosses that demand 80hr. workweeks....:bash: Time for a self imposed art bootcamp..

    ..must.




    ..save...

    I know of four different sessions that happen weekly here. A friend of mine just got a MASSIVE studio space by enron field so we've been talking about trying to organize something there. Maybe even do some extra long poses so we can break out the oil paint!
