So, I've been getting back into drawing. Took an art class, bought a few books, that kind of thing. I've made progress, and gotten critiques on my pieces, all that good stuff. But there's one particular problem I'm having.
Gesture drawings. I can't do them quickly.
Every time I attempt to have one, I keep trying to rationalizing how things would fit, sketchily drawing the lines. I keep reading and getting the message that they should be quick and sweet, but I can only do slow and technical. And it frustrates me, making it hard for me to continue working on something when I feel like I'm not doing it right.
How do you get around trying to be overly technical with something that's supposed to be quick and painless?
