Artist and teacher Oelke offers in-depth instruction in the art of drawing and painting horses, examining the development of time-honored equine art in sporting, portrait, and country life painting. She shows how line, shape, form, light, color, value, space, and design are applied to this field of art. The step-by-step lessons detail equine anatomy, skeletal structure, and musculature; differences among breeds; techniques for quick life sketching versus working from photographs; how to include riders on horseback; and basic landscape settings. Includes color reproductions of contemporary paintings. Annotation copyrighted by Book News Inc., Portland, OR
