Sketching Today

horse sketch

Thought I would do a “little” sketching in the studio today… that is my foot at the bottom right. I had to stand on the table to see the whole thing. My proportions are all out of proportion from drawing while standing next to the table. The watercolor paper is attached to the surface- I wish I could stand the table on end.

The photo reference was taken at the Kentucky Horse Park during a demonstration with a Friesian on long lines. I love the angles and motion. They are such beautiful horses.

Sometimes when I haven’t painted in awhile I work really big and just play. The opportunities for disaster are tangible. The paper is fairly light-weight so it may not hold very much water. We’ll see what happens with this one!
