Overview

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 horse’s 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.
