More experimenting today with drawing on brown paper - possibly in preparation for a painting. The horse on the right is a second attempt to capture this gesture and is done in black charcoal with conte highlights in white and sepia. I will turn the drawing over so you can see the second drawing in the upright position.
You might be wondering about the positioning...... In order to do this drawing, I taped brown paper to a 24 x 36 canvas and did the drawings to maximize the drawing space!
Here they are individually in their correct positions.
Thank you for stopping by - and, as always, your comments inspire me and make me think!
Well, from a horse-woman's and an artist's point of view, they are absolutely breath-taking!!! BRAVO, SUSAN!!!ReplyDelete
:) - thanks, Kathryn. You have such special horse knowledge that I am thrilled that you like these. I turned the paper in order to squeeze the second drawing onto the page (as I like to draw big) and was kind of surprised and pleased at the result! What a journey this art thing is!Delete
Awesome drawing, fabulous movement !ReplyDelete
Many thanks, Jane - the motion and the endless possibilities are what intrigue me in this series.Delete
Oh BOY - Wonderful! I admire your ability so much, Susan.ReplyDelete
These have tested my drawing skills for sure and I am having great fun with them. I love your recent drawing as well, Julie, and your 30 day painting challenge works take my breath away!Delete
Again masterpieces, thanks for showing and information.ReplyDelete
Love your plein aire work so much, Maike - and that taxidermy owl!Delete
I'm intrigued by these horses - they are astounding and the gestural marks are unique! Incredible drawings :0)ReplyDelete
Thank you, Sandra. I think that my life drawing sessions are freeing up my confidence and allowing me to tackle these more complex subjects. More complex than the human figure? Perhaps not. I probably should have said these more difficult poses!Delete
I love these powerful drawings, Susan - they are fabulous!ReplyDelete
Hi, Claire and thank you so much for stopping by! Glad you like these - I may incorporate a few of these recent horses into a painting. Only time will tell!Delete

Your drawing skill makes me envious.ReplyDelete
Great, powerful studies. And feel a bit like mischievous ones, these dancing horses..
I am finding them both difficult and rewarding, Irina.Delete
