Little Books…

I love making books. This is one I made for a friend’s daughter who is mad about horses. I’m doing a large mural of horses running towards you, (see the horses post) so I need to understand the way they move… their musculature, and the way I do that is to draw their anatomy meticulously, so I understand how the muscles flow and interact. (Then when I’m pouring paint on a 12′ mural I innately understand the movement and where my lights and darks, where the ‘flow’ needs to be). This book is made of some of the horse studies I’ve been doing in my studio. I love how that little foal is leaning on his Mom.
