Daily Art #3007

On the days when my day is so full that I have very limited time I fall back to drawing.

This is a study technique I got from The Natural Way to Draw by Nicolaides and which is further expanded upon, in somewhat better terminology, by Steve Huston in Figure Drawing for artists. The technique is a play between structure and gesture. Start with gesture, then shore it up with structure and measurement then back to gesture. Back and forth until you finish.
