Go Figure, 8x10" oil, ©Diane Mannion
Had students take turns posing for 1, 2, and 3 minutes while we sketched each other. Great gesture drawing practice! Not enough time to get stuck on details. The drawings were lively and loose. The focus was simply capturing rhythm and action lines.
Students used paper and pencil while I painted on canvas scraps:
Liked these two gestures the best. Began to create a background.
Worked on the figures. Not happy with this stage.
The final again. Worth while, imaginative exercise... but time to let it go.
