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, so I need to understand the way they move… 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 need 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.
