Drawing Together Episode 22: Hi, Horse!

Drawing Together Episode 22: Hi, Horse!

this episode is Part of the Drawing Together live video series – learn more here

Let’s look at how to draw a horse! I’ll see if we can figure out the form and proportions. We’ll be using line more in this drawing than in some of the other episodes. Let’s ride! Follow along with this reference image: https://bit.ly/2SBxxm7

Today, I’m working with:

  • White Drawing Paper
  • Ebony Pencil (or you can use a soft graphite pencil 4B-6B or darker)
  • Charcoal Pencil
  • Kneaded and Rubber Erasers

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • Drawing a horse
  • Realistic drawing techniques for pencil and charcoal
  • Managing detail

  1. Loved this lesson – Scott, you go slow and take your time with all these lessons. It’s probably the major thing I’ve taken away from it, and that’s not to rush.
    Thanks for another great lesson

  2. I did my own sketch and will post, but I thought It was great that my seven-year-old granddaughter did it with me. I was so pleased with her results but it was remarkable that when I suggested the back leg might be closer like Scott was doing in the lesson, she looked at me and said with confidence “no, I like it that way”. Good for her!

  3. Oh, this was a difficult drawing for me. I struggle with animals and people, which is why these classes have been invaluable. I definitely plan on drawing/painting more horses. Thank you again for taking the time to post these classes.
