Most artists don’t really think about gesture when it comes to portrait painting and yet it is the missing ingredient in many a portrait. As well as using all the typical portrait drawing techniques to create a well executed drawing and painting, gesture is equally important. It could be the angle of the head on the shoulders or the way the hair lies across the forehead- this can be very subtle.Making gestural lines and marks and initially working quickly, you will create a lively portrait with likeness and life.
