I'm really enjoying this bicycle drawing task I've set myself. On New Years Day I spent a couple of hours in my studio with a friend drawing his Globe bicycle. We had a lot of fun! These are gesture poses - ie. the time limit for each drawing was two tracks on my bad party CD (aproximately 5 minutes). This is a common thing to do when drawing the figure as it makes you respond quickly to shape and line without getting bogged down in detail.
Now I need to borrow an old road bike off someone, and perhaps a "fixie".
