Horse Painting Workshop

Acrylic Painting of a Horse

Lucky the miniature horse

I think horses are the hardest animal to draw or paint. They have many nuances that make them very distinctive and elegant. So when my wife saw that Colorado Horse Rescue offered a workshop on painting horses, I had to go. The class catered to all ages and levels of ability, and was structured in a way that everyone got something out of the workshop. I would have like a bit more anatomy, but the instructor was very good at drawing and simplifying the forms. The later portion of the class was putting into practice what we learned by painting a horse. I chose to paint our miniature horse Lucky. I prefer more of a water media, I think my acrylic painting turned. You can find out more about Colorado Horse Rescue here.
