I have always wished that I could draw well. Although both my mother is an artist, and her father was a commercial artist, that particular gene didn’t get passed along to me. Watching someone who knows what they are doing draw, is magical. The horse in this video looks like he’s ready to trot off the page. And he’s such a magnificent horse, too. Powerful, built up hill, a fabulous mover.
I drew horses constantly as a child. Mostly of horses’ heads as those were easier than their bodies. Behold, below, one of my efforts. Okay, I was probably five or younger when I drew this, but it’s fairly representative of my lack of talent.
How about you? Are you an artist? Send me your photos and I’ll post them on Equine Ink!
