Horses have a special place in my heart, life, in my way of being. They have a rare combination of nobility, royalty, strength and humbleness in their posture.
My grandfather was a blacksmith and, basically, most of the time we were surrounded by horses. Observing them, I started to feel the urge to bring them closer, to capture their spirit and to imbibe it in my own nature. I instinctively started to shape my feelings and thoughts about them in different mediums(like drawing, painting, molding clay). It was like discovering a new dimension, different from my known universe by then. It felt like I have discovered a new set of pillars of creation. I was the captain of a ship passing through an event horizon, striving to understand the creative and destructive forces inside this newly discovered realm.
This is my story in a nutshell.
So here it is, my first step-by-step watercolor painting video starring a pair of horses(of course), a piece from the “Horse Tales” series.
I can`t express in words how much I enjoyed doing this.
P.S.: This is my first blog entry too and I enjoyed writing all that stuff up there. I`ll do this more often, it looks like it does good to the skin(among others). 🙂Tags: animal, art, drawing, horse, illustration, music, painting, passion, step-by-step, storytelling, tale, video, watercolor
