34) Outdoor Sketch Adventure

A “quick sketch” a sketch done quickly from live action, differs from the classroom sketch/gesture poses done from a model. The challenge of this class is to learn how to quickly capture on paper the impression of a one-time event or gesture and to plainly depict the personality and essence of a subject.
