Gesture Drawings

When I lived in Toronto, I attended life drawing sessions on a regular basis. If you live there, you might recognize a few of the models! The poses last from 30 seconds to 20 minutes. The drawing should speak for itself no matter how long I spent on it. That's the thrill of gesture drawing... Working out which lines are essential to describe the gesture, no matter short the pose!

Also included are drawings from the Powwow Life Drawing at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa.
