Whether you draw, paint or sculpt, whether your work is hyper-realistic or abstract, anyone who portrays horses in their art will benefit from a firm grounding in equine anatomy. Horses don’t stand still and photos can be deceptive, but a solid foundation of equine anatomy enables the artist to “fill in the blanks”.
This study will concentrate on the structural parts of the horse that bear on the outward appearance. Starting with the bones, it will work through the muscles, tendons and ligaments. The emphasis will be on the horse’s movement and how the muscles change with this movement.
