84 – BURNING MY 20,000 GESTURE DRAWINGS

The Drawing exercise Gesture Drawing and Letting Go of Art are the main topics for this one, as I attempt to burn my 20,000 Gesture Drawings; Five years worth of Gesture Drawing go up in smoke, or do they? Dun dun dun lol

I cover a lot of tings on this one,

Gesture Drawing resources – QuickPoses and Croquis Cafe,
Traditional vs Digital,
The KOH-I-NOOR Clutch Pencil with Magic Coloured Leads,
Proko’s Figure Drawing Course,
Practicing Bad Habits,
Should you start your Gestures with the Head?,
Facing Fears,
and How the Mind is a Nobhead!

You’ll hear Fireworks exploding in the background at times, as I recorded this one spur of the moment on Halloween night, KA-BOOM! Think it adds a bit of ambiance to the episode :)

I had an aha! Moment during this one … I realised Gesture Drawing isn’t about collecting your Drawings, it’s about showing up to do the Drawing Exercise.

*sniff sniff*

Can you smell burning? I know I can lol

Hope you have fun with this one :)
