Hello... Is it me you're looking for?


Here is an interesting link (warning...nudity)....a great website for doing timed gesture drawings:
Figure Drawing
 Drawing: Celeste Bergin, Gesture, oil on 12x16 paper

And just for fun:
Lionel Ritchie's song "Hello" came out in 1984. Have a look at the original, followed by The Hello Experiment and to round out your Hello experience, be sure to watch this too:

Awesome gestural drawing, Celeste. I so wish I could do this. Loved the video, though admittedly I like Lionel Richie's version better. LOL

Celeste...that's a fine gesture drawing! I really intend to take advantage of the link to get some much needed practice! Thanks.

Loved the video, "Hello".

Thank you so much for the figure link. I never knew anything like that existed.

Great sketch! And no one sings it the way Lionel Richie does! Love that song.

Well, Hello and thanks for the link--I'm always on the lookout for nudes (not many around my town). Looks like a great site.

I LOVED the "hello Experiment." We should try it sometime.
