Come on! let me out!

by Jonathan Clarke
(Yorkshire U.K)

I drew this on Acrylic paper because I am a fool and do not know what I am doing yet. The paper is 14"x10". It is drawn using Derwent coloured pencils, My goal being to accomplish something similar to a Horse. However, I feel I may have fallen someway short, and have not done justice to this magnificent beast.This is my first attempt, and clearly have a long way to go.

Dark against light
by: Dorothy, Carluke

Hi Johnathan,

This is very good for a first attempt just keep on trying because you have found a great hobby.

The above rule might help you. We are told to paint dark against light and vice versa so if I were you I would darken the horses rump that will make his nose look lighter and also give it some form. Darken the upright of the stable door or darken the inner area of the stable and leave the upright light this will give it depth. In sort if you have a light area make the area next to it darker and if you have a dark area make the area next to it light. There is also the rule of lost and found but it is a bit too complicated to explain but get yourself to a good book or search the Net for drawing and painting tips.

Keep up the good work.

Dorothy

Don't be so hard on yourself
by: Todd

Don't be so hard on yourself (that's what we're here for)! Indeed, it does look very similar to something we call a horse in America. I applaud you for creating something with your good materials. Too often I just draw my little 'sincere studies', too hesitant to sully my fine papers of archival quality with a mediocre, untrained effort. At least you have done something with yours. Keep it up.
