Gesture figure drawing workshop
I was fortunate to participate in Barbara Fugate's gesture drawing workshop last weekend. It was a welcome diversion from a heavy workload of digital design. Barbara posted some our student drawings. (No drawing was more than 3 minutes, most only one minute.) She says gesture drawing is like playing music. I missed out on learning to play an instrument, but doing this type of drawing must be a bit like jazz improvisation, lyrical and very satisfying creatively. I look forward to another taking workshop in March.
Barbara is a figure drawing master and a wonderful teacher. See Barbara's amazing expressive figure work and learn about future workshop offerings at her "From Life" blog.
