Anatomy for Equine Artists

I am thrilled to announce, "Anatomy for Equine Artists", with  Meredith Hudes-Lowder of Equus ferus Wild Horse PhotographyWe will examine the anatomy of a horse from an artist's perspective. A strong background in and knowledge of anatomy are critical for artists regardless of discipline. A fascinating in-depth examination of these magnificent animals and provide deeper understanding and appreciation. We will begin the series with the SHOULDER and will include skeletal, ligamentous, tendonal, and muscular aspects with an emphasis on movement. The anatomical regions will be presented from numerous angles, differing coat colours, and lighting circumstances. We will provide photographic, anatomical, and artistic examples of both genders and varying ages of the mustangs. The entire ANATOMY FOR THE EQUINE ARTIST will be available for purchase as a DVD with hundreds more photos and examples. Examples of painting technique for each area covered. The influence of light, shadow, form, and atmosphere will be  discussed.
