Day 46 #100horsesbyroxanne

Back to using my trusty willow charcoal today! 😍 Coming back to explore the idea of using stick figures to capture movement quickly without getting bogged down with details.

Yesterday's post felt like a lightbulb moment for me. For someone who usually uses a lot of detail this method of drawing the horse, I believe, could be the one to help loosen me up and incorporate more expression of movement into my work. 

I had sooo much fun with this one. Working from a photograph, it felt like I finally understood the concept of why using circles, blocks and lines can really help improve your drawing when it comes to proportions. Drawing from the inside, out has definitely started to make me think more about the anatomy of the horse and how the anatomy is connected with this particular process in order to construct its form. I think I'll be doing more of these 😊
