Louis Gonzales instructed our gesture class today. He started the session off with, "All that I ask today is that you focus on angles. Forget about anatomy, forget about fingers and toes, I know you can draw em. What I want is the angles, the main idea of the pose. And proportion would be the second thing.""You've got thirty seconds to nail the pose."
"Draw each pose twice. Try something different the second time around. Push the idea further or explore a new approach.""I'm sorry if you came here hoping to make a pretty drawing. That's not what we're doing, today."
