Here’s some studies I’v been making spurred by interest in gesture drawing and my disappointment i my drawing at the last life class. As I’v stated I’m trying to get back to line as a clear confident line or mark is where the feeling lives making better drawings. All drawing made from photos in the book Anatomy for the Artist by Sarah Simblet, photos of life models on line and a few studies of Derek Overfeild drawings.
