Sketchbook # 7 step by step drawing

Sketchbook # 5 resource

Gesture drawings are loosely drawn and take a short amount of time. Draw an object from life-not a photo without lifting pencil. Cross-contours can help create form within an object. Gesture drawing should capture the main composition but should not be a clean outline with details.
