but his work just leaves me cold.
If I want some equine art, my go-to guy is always Munnings.
I like the site this painting is on because it has lots of his horse studies, which I love to look at.
And, of course, Sam Savitt.
I learned so much from his work about horse anatomy, breeds and colour.
Plus, if I want to see the power and movement of the horse captured in paint, I can never go past this.
I know what you mean about bad horse art. A good friend of mine once gave me a framed pastel study of a horse. The pastel work was excellent and the horse was beautiful, except for the unfortunate fact that its muzzle was about a third too long, and totally out of proportion. It completely ruined the image. I also found it really weird that this woman who had always been around horses couldn't seem to 'see' this problem. At least, I don't think she could, because surely she would not have bought it otherwise. It lead to a really interesting conversation with my sister, who knows nothing about horses, but knows plenty about art. She instantly spotted the flaw.
I used to be able to draw and paint passable horses, but it's ages since I tried.
By the way, I loved your site. But sorry, I can't teach you how to draw a spaceship.
