The T/TH class began studies in Gesture Drawing. Like the contour technique, gesture drawing builds eye-hand coordination. Unlike contour which is a slow, single incisive line, gestural lines are quick and spontaneous. Furthermore, gestural lines are rephrased and multiplied. We explored line, mass and scribble techniques. The line technique illustrates the structural qualities of an object whereas the mass and scribble techniques capture the volume and values or light of an object. Notice in the last drawing how there is a greater sense of atmosphere and environment.
