M/W class followed up contour drawing with gesture studies. For more on gesture, see the post from 1/24. Above are two examples of scribble gesture drawings. Alisha's drawing has skillfully captured the mass and volume qualities indicative of the scribble technique. Note the placement of the dark values to add weight and a sense of light striking the form of the gourd. In addition, the scale and size of the gourd holds the page very well engaging with the negative space around the gourd. James's drawing exhibits a sense of motion by way of the amorphic edges of the form. The gourd seems to pulse and flutter like a jelly fish through water.
