Session #122, Work #125

 

We started tonight with lots of pure gesture drawing, wow this was difficult for me. Generalizing the body in just a few arcs yet keeping proportions close, and an elegance in the motion, very difficult.

We then went into a few longer poses where I just did a bunch of starts, to try and figure out how to get proportions of the body correct in the first minutes of the drawing. I believe this is the absolute most important part of a drawing. If you don’t get these measurements correct here, the rest of the drawing will suffer completely. Needless to say, I didn’t “finish” a drawing these session, but I think I have a better idea of what I need to do to start a drawing best.
