"It is a time of tons of verbiage, activity, and consumption.... But I do know that many who are driven to this life are desperately searching for those pockets of silence where they can root and grow. We must all hope that they find them."
Mark Rothko, 1969

60 and 90 second gesture sketches
The point of these is to quickly capture movement or flow within a figure. I do them on newsprint with china marker, limiting myself to 10, 30, 60 or 90 seconds per figure. No erasing, no thinking really, and usually the only person who ever sees them is me.
