Use Your Sketchbook

A sketchbook is a visual storehouse, a place to practice, and a fascinating and sometimes poignant record of life as well.

Capture the posture and gesture of your subject in a few moments. Try for a sense of character if you can in some of the angles and shapes.

Artist's Sketchbook

Gesture drawings are drawn from short poses, no more than four minutes and often as short as one minute.

Try Your Hand

Try to mentally experience the pose yourself, particularly the more energetic ones. Feel the tension or off-centeredness, the weight on one foot, or the reach or twist as if it were you.
