Good Ole No. 2 Pencil

LC is really getting into drawing with a simple, yellow no. 2 pencil.

She described the below drawing: "Somebody on a swing, but don't know how draw swing, so somebody with wings ."


LC's drawing looks like a gesture sketch! I did gesture sketches in a Life Drawing class at Parsons School of Design a decade ago. We were given only 1 minute to draw a live model's pose. The male model would keep changing his pose every minute. We had a series of action poses to get down on a large sheet of paper, but you had to boil them down to the essentials...in terms of gestures. Exciting and fun!
