Gesture Drawings: Veggies

Gestural Veggies

We usually associate gesture drawings with nude figures because typically, they are executed from a live model as simple line drawings in as little as 30 seconds to a couple of minutes, usually as a warm-up exercise to longer figure studies. In this instance, our teacher encouraged us to do this exercise using whatever we have at hand—most of us can’t afford to hire a model every time we feel like it— so in this case, we had a bunch of vegetables to choose from and we took the exercise a little farther by adding shading and tone. Just seeing these again is a reminder of just how much I enjoyed the process and is a strong inspiration to pick up my drawing tools again!
