Life drawing is one of the best ways for an artist to hone their drawing skills.   Pen and ink 'scribble' gesture drawing is so much fun to do for the 'quick poses' at the beginning of the evening, and this is the perfect time to experiment with various drawing implements/mediums while your drawing hand is limbering up for the longer poses.

The playfulness of the line created with the 'scribble' gesture technique really speaks to me... must be tapping into my inner child.  As you can see in the longer study 'Aneta in Chair' I incorporated a less frenetic, but still playful line quality with the pen and ink tonal wash.
