Drawing Lesson - Gesture / Action Drawings 2

In this second gesture exercise will draw the action and not concentrate on the outline.  Again start with the whole form and work to define the parts.  Gesture drawings are sketched or scribbled with speed and bravado and you must approach the process with abandonment. Do not draw details; you are capturing the model’s balance, weight distribution and action.  Your line should be thin and thick to very broad strokes.
