I spend a day a week sketching 2 and 4 minute gesture poses. It is a wonderful exercise to sharpen your eye and drawing skills. We start with 10 two minute poses and I try all sorts of things to make each one different. I use charcoal, sharpie, pencil, and watercolor. I try circles, contour drawing, and negative space approaches. At the end of the session, I am tired. Drawing the human figure from short poses is work.
