Figure Gesture Sketches

16"x22" Charcoal on paper
We're doing the human figure these days in my Drawing class at the College of Charleston. We were given five minutes to do a "gesture sketch" of the female nude model using compressed charcoal. Then the model turned and we did another 5 minute sketch from a different angle. The first few poses were 1 and 2 minute sketches, (and really hard to capture) so by the time we got up to these 5-minute sketches, I had a little more practice.
