Gesticulating Man

In contrast to yesterday’s post, the sketch below is of a man who was very fidgety. His arms moved much more frequently than his body. The trouble I have with this kind of sketch is that I get mixed up. I use the visual cues of the lines I just drew to plan my next line. With the jumble of different positions, the visual feedback is muddled and confusing.

    • Thank you, Claudia. I used to be frustrated the the subject of one of my sketches moved or changed positions. Somewhere I saw an artist’s notebook with overdrawn limbs, trunks and even heads. I gave myself permission to do the same.
