The Natural Way To Draw

This is an example of a gesture drawing done by an artist known as A. Radley. The purpose of gesture drawings is to capture a movement of the object as a whole, not in parts. A gesture drawing is not about consciously thinking about the next placement of the pen/pencil/paintbrush,etc. it is about going with the immediate thought of what the artist feels the emotions of the object is. It is said that to help in drawing an object, instead of a person, for a gesture drawing is to think about why it is there. This image was drawn as the artist was watching a dancer in a studio
