I don’t have any life drawing sessions where I live so I’ve been doing 20 minute sessions of gesture drawing a day for the past several months using the Croquis Cafe youtube channel. Thing is, I don’t seem to be making any progress. There are 5 one minute poses followed by 4 two minute poses and a final 5 minute pose. Very, very fast. I can see some action and gesture in some of my sketches, though they are still quite stiff, but the foreshortening/proportion/anatomy is so off it makes them almost unreadable.
Should I slow down and throw in some longer sessions (30-90 minute poses)? Will that help work out some of the proportion/foreshortening issues?
Or maybe alternate between the gesture days and the longer pose days?
