PAFA Week 3

Both of these are about 15-20 second gesture drawings done as warm-ups.

The last pose which I redrew since the first version was just so stiff.

To help me lossen up on my drawings this week the teacher Joe had me draw with an improvised drawing untensil, a piece of vine charcoal tapped to the end of a pencil, essentially giving me a charcoal wand. This was to enforce me being loose and drawing out of my comfort zone. It worked, and while proportions got a bit funky, I definitely go looser. I was bebating not going this week as i am so swamped with work, but I am glad I did.

These look really great, Mike. Very strong. I wish classes like these were offered in my area.
