Horse Sketch

animalsMichele ClampComment

I have a commission that I really want to do a good job on.   Well of course I always want to do a good job but this one is, ummm, tricky.    Horses.   Horses with riders.   Not straightforward and even Mr Zbukvic says horses are the most difficult things on the planet.  So today was horse sketching day.     Not fantastically successful but progress is being made.   

And we have a video!    First time doing a time lapse on the iphone.   This was very professionally propped up on a coffee mug next to the water jar and came out well considering.

It's very strange to watch this.   It looks like I just draw things and then color them in straightforwardly.    It is abolutely nothing like that in real life.    It's a constant stream of decisions, problem solving,  mistakes,  going over stuff.     Also - next time shoot from the left hand side.  Will have to get the tripod out.
