Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Appealing to budding artists and horse lovers alike, this collection of five rousing, step-by-step projects applies various mediums—from graphite and ink to watercolor, gouache, and acrylic—to re-create equestrian subjects. This guide begins with simple drawing exercises that study horse head and neck details—first experimenting with scribbles and basic shape drawings and evolving these images into more refined works that reveal shadow, tone, and movement. Painting projects emphasize color and technique to achieve the realistic texture of a horses coat and other markings. More challenging subjects include a horse cantering through water and an inspiring herd of mustangs in the wild. Providing reassuring advice along the way, instructor Eva Dutton encourages confident artists to move beyond step-by-step exercises and offers additional guidance about finding new inspiration, drawing from life, and discovering reference materials.

Synopsis:

Equestrian artist, Eva Dutton, shows how to capture the beauty and movement of horses in drawings and paintings. From scribbled sketches and shape drawings, through to more developed drawings and painting techniques, this book is packed with advice, tips and inspirational illustrations, and there are five beautiful step-by-step demonstrations. Beginners will gain confidence with Evas easy to follow approach and more experienced artists will find this book a wonderful source of ideas and reference.
