Gesture Sketch Challenge

Ladies and gentlemen - pens at the ready!

LAS Member Simon Bolton is one half of Rooftop Theatre company, who are putting on a production of Henry V in February - seeing this started a train of thought. Knowing how popular Shakespeare is, and how much fun gesture sketching can be, this is a little challenge I've thought up - if you're going, my challenge to you is to try to capture something there, maybe some audience members, maybe the actors.

If you've never tried this before, it's fantastic fun. At parks, train stations, concerts, anywhere there's a gathering of people, attempting to capture the essence of movement and character in a short space of time means you have to quickly figure out which elements of what you see are most important to you.

If you have a go then why not email me your sketches ( and we'll collect them together in a mini-gallery on this blog at the end of February . This could cover any gesture sketches you do during the month, it doesn't have to be limited to the play.
