We invited Komachi along to the class last night to strike some gestural poses for us to draw. The session was all about movement and capturing the figure in action. The poses were short, with only 30 seconds to capture the essence of the what the figure was doing.
Komachi was also asked to move to music and the group had to respond to this movement with their marks. Even for the last 'longer pose' Komachi was asked to continuously shift her position and the drawings were constructed through repeated drawing and rubbing back of the image.
What resulted is life drawing full of life!
