Drawing people moving is as enjoyable as it is frustrating! For this exercise that is based around Margaretâ€™s Central Park roller skaters, I chose to cool things down a bit. I drew ICE skaters. They spin and glide just as much as roller bladers. These particular skaters were young girls so it was super sweet. Not to mention super impressive! The exercise called for using both hands so by the end of this drawing session my head was doing spins too!
