I’ve been busy with work and a family wedding, so it’s taken me a while to post anything new! Here’s a group of studies from one of Muybridge‘s wonderful sequences.

I keep mentioning on this blog that I want to do more drawing from life, so when the stable I’ve begun riding at advertised an informal show jumping event I went along to sketch the participants. At the beginning it was hard to put more than a couple of lines down, but after a while I relaxed and sped up and managed to capture more detail.

One thing that was great fun to draw (though not so good for those riding) were the refusals and run outs. I felt I was able to create drawings covering a huge range of personalities and action.

Last week my laptop had to go in for repair, so I’ve had to do without a computer for the last few days. It’s been frustrating, given how much I use one! Perhaps it’s good to get a break once in a while. I haven’t been able to edit and post my drawings until now, so here are a few. My friend Amy shares a horse named Bob Marley (it’s the mane) who I’ve been to visit a few times. While she¬†was riding him in the school I did a few quick sketches in pen.
