Honoré Daumier and Gesture

See how Daumier begins his drawing with a loose gesture drawing. By approaching the figures in this loose gestural way he was able to add life and vitality, as well as proportion and mass to his composition. His finished paintings maintain this liveliness due to his use of gesture in the beginning!
