Gesture Drawing

I took Ryan Woodward's gesture drawing class spring term.  This class taught me how much I needed to loosen up with drawing. There was a big focus on exaggeration, and I don't think a pose was ever longer than 10 minutes, so these are all somewhere between 1-10 minutes. I think you can really see Ryan's influence, but in classes I like to implement--as best I can--the principles taught by the teacher, and then later try to fold it into my own style more. Don't know if that's the best strategy, but it works for me.


  1. Ah, you're so lucky to have taken a figure drawing class from Ryan! These are beautiful. I especially like your last gesture.

  2. Yeah Ryan is an amazing teacher! You should definitely take some classes from him while you're at BYU.
