Gesture Drawing

by Santo Perez

It has been said plenty of times that the best warm-up drawing exercise is gesture drawing.

With a little practice this gives you more confidence when drawing the human figure and should encourage you to draw more spontaneously.

When gesture drawing, you do not lose the unrestrained quality of scribbling -- it's not only a "lose" sketch to show the dynamics of the human form, you are drawing the essential action giving your drawing vitality which takes it well above scribbling!
