I recently started using chalk pastels again and in the process was playing with the movement of horses in my sketchbook. I grew up with horses and trying to draw horses that look as if they are moving is something I keep coming back to. It is actually quite difficult and I struggle to keep the proportions of the horses right. Here are this weeks attempts:
A horse at trot
A horse rearing
These were drawn on textured pastel paper which really made a difference to the way the pastel worked. It is something that I would like to experiment more with in the future.
