37 – GESTURE DRAWING

So Free Art Podcast Episode 37 - Why do Gesture Drawing? How to do Gesture Drawing? Book Review, Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Dr Joe Dispenza ... with Transgender Artist Sophie Lawson

This lil one’s all about Gesture Drawing, a really fun drawing exercise that helps get more energy into your artwork, especially Characters. I talk about why it’s MY MOST FUN DRAWING EXERCISE, and how online resources like QuickPoses.com and Croquis Cafe, can help improve your Gesture Drawing skills.

There’s also a new feature this week in Book Book Time :) where I look at a different book each episode, as well as the lil Art Tip, which this week is :

lil ART TIP TIME
USE THE BIGGEST PIECE OF PAPER YOU CAN FIND WHEN DOING GESTURE DRAWING

**BONUS**

Here’s an extra teeny weeny lil challenge to try

TRY STARTING A GESTURE DRAWING WHERE YOU FEEL THE MOST FEELING, NOT NECESSARILY WITH THE HEAD

A lot of people say start with the head, but I’ve found my Gestures feel more Energetic when I start where I feel the most feeling. That feeling place is where I’m most Excited, and that initial Excitement seems to Flow throughout the rest of the Gesture when I start with it.

BOOK BOOK 1
Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself: How To Lose Your Mind And Create A New One, by Dr Joe Dispenza

This book changed my life, I haven’t read it in over five years, but the stuff I learnt in this one really did stay with me. Like Art, this book makes you see the world totally differently, and I have a feeling it could end up being the most important book you ever read; Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself, by Dr Joe Dispenza, had to be my first BOOK BOOK :)

If you have any tips or questions about Gesture Drawing, this weeks lil Art Tip, the Book Book, any of the Topics on this episode, or any questions/topics you’d like discussed on future episodes, please get in touch.
