International Artist magazine is the first of two articles on sketching animals from life.
In the first installment, I discuss getting started by drawing sleeping dogs, taxidermy animals in museums and live animals in zoos.
For the second installment, I want to talk about dealing with farm animals and even wild animals from direct observation in a variety of media.
Here's where you come in. I would like to approach the topic in a Q and A format, with questions that you provide.
So in the comments, please ask me anything about sketching animals from life. I'll pick my favorite ten questions or so.
Here's a baby miniature horse that I painted --while she was napping-- on a farm near where I live.
