Gestures Of Harry



My brave Wednesday art class students have joined me in my focus on people this year and we were lucky enough to have Harry model for us again this week.
I concentrated on gesture sketching using poses of between 1-3 minutes to build their hand to eye coordination, drawing what they see with their eyes on instinct, allowing no time for fussing about.
The class went exceptionally well and Harry was a star, as usual!
I have found that making sketches myself during these sessions gives me a good insight to their trials and errors, they also provide me with something solid to aid me during our half time discussions.

You're learning things that will in later years help you so very much----honing your observation skills etc.
