OSK!

I finally went out to see Jenny Lerew's Icelandic horses and I got a chance to sketch this one named "Osk". It was fun!

WOW! Hol-lee. Dave these are awesome. I can't figure you how you got so much solidity and movement.
My hat is off to you sir.

Jenny said...

That's my Osk-y, alright. ; )

My favorite's the rolling sketch; you got it!

damn you're fast! These are beautiful. I have always struggled with horses..especially their legs. Great sketches Master P!

Ken Morrissey said...

Awesome sketches man! You are a true
inspiration. Seeing these sketches
makes me want to draw horses again!

... just haven't had the desire after "Spirit".

(thanks again for the kind words earlier.)

Beauties! What colour are these horses in reality? I'm guessing WHITE?

Jenny said...

Matt J. I'll barge in and hijack Dave's blog to answer:
they're a color called "bay", which is a reddish-brown with black mane and tail. I can see where you might think "white"(horsey trivia: NO one ever calls a white horse "white"--for some bizarre reason even the whitest horses are called "grey", officially).
Since these are gesture drawings done with a japanese brush-cartridge pen the aim is to get the movement and form(and--no pun intended!--"spirit").
If Dave had had some watercolors or a wash, etc. they'd look colored. Anyweay, that's my 2 cents--Mr. Pimentel, feel free to smack me down if I'm wrong! ; )

Aw, nuts!! Another typo! I can't type at all!
Sorry. : (
DP: please do send me your email-if I had it I lost it.

Hello! Very inspiring work. Thanks.

Sweet lookin' horses!

Everytime I have to draw horses it takes me a while to ease into it. I have a great amount of respect for anyone who draws horses well.

Best horse resource: Ken Hultgren's Art of Animal Drawing.
