Hey just thought maybe someone could try explaining gesture drawing. I just started college at CCS and in fundamentals we are going over this to start out with. The professor is telling us that there is ONE line that can be drawn (gesture line that is) to capture the essence of the still life or whatever it is your drawing. He was telling us that its not really something that can be explained but felt, but its not subjective, it is only "THIS" line and nothing else. Its not a "oh i think its this line going that way" type of thing, there is one there but the thing is I have no idea to to tell if I have that right line connecting the drawing. The connecting line doesn't necissarily have to be a physical line or contour line but an "internal" line.
I just thought maybe someone might have a better grasp on it and maybe be able to explain it a little more clearly.
