I went to the 9 a.m. drawing session and did a few 2-3 minute gesture drawings, some came out better than others. I first came in with the mind set to produce some killer gestures to post on the blog, needless to say, that wasn't working out for me very well. I then decided during the 1 minute gestures, to stop caring and focus more on the practical application of figure drawing, and see what I was doing poorly versus well.
While these studies are far from perfect, I feel they demonstrate more of what I learn about myself the more I draw. Focusing more on the shapes and forms in a simple manner, allowed me to more effectively interpret the model when I worked on the more quick studies.
