Capturing movement in your artwork.

Enjoy drawing quickly & expressively. 


Attempting to capture movement in your artwork is difficult, but much more fun than drawing a static still-life. My favourite subject at the moment is racehorses and I have developed various techniques for creating the illusion of speed. However the best and simplest way is to draw as quickly and expressively as you can. This may mean a few sketches ending up in the bin, but when it works the result will be a dynamic piece of work with your spontaneity showing through on the paper. Drawing should be fun, don't hold yourself back for fear of mistakes, just go for it and enjoy!
