Hello my friends and welcome to another Tuesday of tutorial! I am Leonardo Pereznieto and today we will sketch a girl with a running horse. I’ll begin using a small brush to apply a light watercolor wash. I’m drawing with this ink or paint. When drawing a horse I usually start from the head, which is fairly triangular. Then the neck, curving like this… very slightly the upper part of it here more straight and the body. The inspiration for this sketch is my Instagram friend Chloe Carabasi who is a beautiful model and actress.
I recommend you to follow her Instagram account, which is full of wonderful pictures with horses and her of course! And if you are not following me on Instagram, please do so as well! [laughter]. And now let’s draw Chloe herself! We begin with the head and face. I have to be careful because this ink or paint cannot be erased at least not easily, however, that is also one of the reasons why I’m using it so light! because if I do something wrong I can do a double line or a correction and then I can go over it with a darker one and it would look okay. I apply a wash to the shaded areas leaving what is catching direct light, white. Very good! That’s the base of the sketch and now
I will use a falcon fountain pen to draw more detail and to give it more contrast. The list of materials that I am using is in the information below the video. This ink can also not be erased, however it is much easier to apply it once I have the watercolor in place, but in some instances I may not go over it exactly because I may be correcting or refining the shapes as I go. To shade with the pen we can use hatching and cross-hatching. I love doing this! I love drawing so much! and I love horses and of course
I love drawing beautiful women, so I guess I’m trying to say that this sketch is just a treat [laughter]. This technique of applying the ink first with a brush in a light wash and then going over it with a pen is of course very old and was used by the great Masters, they used brownish colors. I am taking their technique and giving it a more modern look with the blue. It’s looking a little flat, so let’s go over the shadows, the darkest ones again, to reinforce them. That’s better! It’s ready! If you enjoyed it please give it a LIKE! subscribe to Fine Art-Tips and click on the little bell to get notifications of new videos,
