About three weeks ago I had a gesture breakthrough; I used to always hate my gestures, but I’m in love with them now. I now draw them much more loosely, and I find the results and the process much more enjoyable. You can even see it here. The first image is half-way through the transition, while the second and third are after it.
All are done in charcoal on newsprint.
I tried to arrange them in order of how long I spent on each drawing, ranging from thirty second gestures to the last one which took an hour.
