Learn How to Use Gesture and Proportion in Your Drawing

September 20, 2019 1 min read

In this clip from his video workshop, Drawing Gesture in Charcoal and Pastel, Craig Nelson captures the gestures of a posed figure in a light sketch that he calls a "ghost drawing." Craig works at arm's length using light pencil strokes to transfer the basic shapes and proportions from his reference photo to his paper. You learn to identify and place key elements and make revisions when you find errors in your initial sketch. Learn more about Craig’s video workshop here.
