Today was the first day of the long pose for the morning class. Before a pose is decided upon we've found that doing a session of gesture drawing is a great way to both get warmed up and to explore different ideas and see what happens. After our think tank of experts makes a decision on which of the poses they'd like to draw, we'll set it up and get started on the long haul to make some drawings that are more refined. When we finish those we'll post them up so you can see where all this finally wound up. Here are some of the drawings done by various students during the session.
