Summer Wanderings

Summer means getting out of the studio, under a tree anywhere with a sketch book and mark makers.

Just doodling, in the city, in the country.

Just Horses, at the CNE Horse Palace

This winter a group of artists had access to a special figure drawing studio, 12 weeks of drawing horses & riders from life courtesy of Toronto Police Service's Mounted Unit.

Drawing is easy, make a mark on a surface. Make those easy marks with simple tools; paper & pencil, later water soluble graphite, makers etc. Make them on paper,  from live models. Make a final satisfying picture. It's challenging and fun since horses do not do 20 minute sustained poses. Horses + Riders, even less so. However poses repeat and repeat as Toronto's Mounted Unit goes through its training paces while moving in all directions.

 Thank you Toronto Police Services Mounted Unit.
