I never would have believed I would one day wake up enthused about painting horses, but as I'm beginning to get a grasp of their form, and with gentle and helpful critiques from Barrie and Daisy, they have become a very fun challenge.
My plan is to continue drawing and painting them from photos until I can confidently draw a pretty good horse without looking at anything. (The lower left pencil drawing was a stab at doing one out of my head.) I figure I'll be where I want to be about 100 horses from now.
