Equine Sketches, Three, ink drawing on paper by Carol Engles


18 x 23 ink on paper. This is another equine sketches drawing. I do these very fast to practice my drawings skills. I "pull the horses" out of my head and go for it.  Gestural drawing is not about perfection or detail. It is about suggestion of a subject, so looseness and quick execution is important.

Thanks Theresa! They are relaxing to do because it really is just sketching without worry about how it turns out! HA! Congratulations again on your wine label. You have the ability to produce art that is both fine art and yet has strong design appeal as well. Not everyone can achieve both with their art.
