No figure drawing today, so in preparation for an upcoming commission, I decided to pull out my animal anatomy books and do a few sketches in my Moleskine. With these I'm just trying to familiarize myself with the structure of the animal, the various components that make up the whole, and how a horse actually moves. How I'll approach the actual character or spirit will have to wait until I meet the horse in person. I'm really hoping that I get to work with this client, as I would love to paint one of these massive creatures life-sized! Stay tooned.
