Drawing Horses

I like horses. I didn’t plan to add horses to my sketch journal. Surprisingly, I’m getting better at drawing them. Horses are such beautiful animals. Riding off into the sunset and wild and free are ideas I want to work with. I could use the shape, an outline… I should add that to my practice. I will.

I drew the first top two using geometric shapes style. Good. Somewhere in the middle I stopped observing shapes and began drawing the exactly parts. That didn’t work so good. The lettering is a cute idea for a book or party theme decor. Maybe I could write a wild an free quote with a few horse theme letters.

I messed up on the middle horse. The middle is obviously wrong but the idea of creating a garland of winning circle flowers makes sense.

Maybe I should stick to a horse profile. Less details less mistakes.

Ok I like the idea.

Good Practice. Next time a bigger eye and paint. Wait a minute, isn’t there a horse sample in my Ed Emberly book? I should add that too.

How can I use what I like to tell my story as an artist?
