is another great sketchbook exercise. The objective of a gesture drawing is to capture
form and movement. You can do this by observing your family members while they're doing
their chores, drawing people playing sports, or just people walking along the street.
These drawings don't involve a lot of detail. Much of it is quick
strokes. It may appear scribbled and not at all like the subject but keep in mind that the
objective is form.
Gesture drawings will prepare you for a lot of observational work. It increases the
speed at which you can work at, so when you're in a workshop with live models, you will be
able to capture the details that you want to include in the time allotted.
