Sketching people, gestures and body language • Paeony Lewis
I've come to realise that when sketching people, what draws me are the body language and gestures made between people and objects, or between people. The interaction. Here are a few from my fledgling sketchbooks.
|Cafe Nero, cliched contrast. Slouching vs upright chair.|
|Always looking down.|
|Couldn't resist the eager woman with her dog pulling one way|
and the man who wants to escape the conversation.
|However sketchy, I enjoy the interaction of adult and child.|
|Sometimes gestures can be subtle. |
Just the upward turn of the head and downward side glance.
|Here, legs and shoes interact with hand luggage on the London underground.|
