Drawing is FUN!

“Drawing is a frame of mind,
a loving embrace, if you will."

Everything has a gesture!
Although often used as warm up for a life drawing session,
gesture drawing is an important exercise in developing skill in drawing.
Drawing from life uses different "muscles" than drawing from a photo does.
The brain processes 3D objects differently than when viewing flat, 2D reference.

Models. Timer and 2 Minute Sketches

I downloaded a Simple Interval Timer for my iPad and
set up 16) sets of 2 min. each with 10 sec. in-between.

8 Drawings in 15 Minutes

Start the session and sketch for 2 minutes,
then turn (the model) 1/4 turn every 2 minutes.
For 16 sessions, I can draw 4 views each
of four different models in just 33 minutes.
If you only have 15 minutes to spare, just do 8!

"Draw, as much and as often as you can.
When drawing lies fallow,
the skill diminishes."
~ Gene Black
