I actually started this piece about 7-8 months ago, but took an extended hiatus from it.

I’ve been doing more gesture drawings lately. It is challenging and new. Sure, for beautiful final products we can spend as much time as we want. But life doesn’t stand still, which makes it that much harder to capture. To do it well requires a well-trained eye and mind, so I’ve been attempting to train my own.
Of course I have the luxury of hiding the poorer ones from you. Here’s a horrible one to balance it all out.
Mm hmm. I’ll say though, the pool is a good place for such exercises. If you can avoid getting burnt, which I failed to do.
