Painting Draft Horses

Sketches of the draft horses at the county fair. Gouache, watercolor, and fountain pen, 5 x 8 inches.

These horses didn't pose, even though they always had handlers, because they were getting ready for their events. That's why I kept the sketches small and started several of them in different poses.

Great Dynamism! I could never get it to the point of capturing constantly moving animals, so far, even by closing the eyes and work from memory as you suggested in an earlier post. Well done!
