It is kind of a exercise, contour drawing is done when the pencil meets paper and your eyes follow the contour of your subject. A gesture is a quick, scribble type sketch meant to capture the general information. What I do is a combination of both, especially in the dark. If I pick my pencil up I can't see where to put it back down again. So, I just scribble away, documenting that moment in time, keeping a visual memory in my sketchbook.
