I just started this new blog for the sake of art students enrolled in my Life Drawing class at Fairleigh Dickinson University. It acts as a supplement to the class work. Feel free to comment on it. I am particularly interested in the comments from current students as well as fellow artists.
This is an example of two 30 second gesture drawings done on top of each other.
The challenge is to keep proportion in mind, but work fast, without pausing to measure. It is an excersize to loosen up your hand and eye in the beginning of class. It will also train you to see the bigger picture and not be distracted by details of a figure (which can be added in much later if you wish).
