For today’s assignment, please grab some paper and charcoal (or any writing utensil that you are comfortable using), and watch this video!

(Remember, “gesture drawings” are quick sketches emphasizing movement or action… take a deep breath, put pencil or charcoal to paper, and try to capture the shape of the elephant as best as you can. Work quickly.)

Giveaway: If you do the assignment, leave your comment for a chance to win this drawing (from Lab 37: Random Pick Drawings, page 101, mixed media on paper, about 9″x9″). (Remember, you don’t need to show me your results… if you comment, I will believe that you did the assignment!)

The winner will be picked after 12 noon Pacific time, Tuesday, July 27th. Happy drawing!
