Gesture drawings show the internal dynamic of the thing you are drawing. If you have a friend or family member who can pose for you, ask them to take an active pose, and to change poses continually after one minute each. If you don’t have a model available, go somewhere where you can see people moving about – a shopping center, a park, a construction site? In the worst case, draw figures moving on television.

Here are some of my 1 minute Gesture drawings I did in class and at home. The figures were in class, and the cats were at home. :)

Try this! It is fun!
