"I feel the shape of the horse in my mind's eye. I follow the movement across the shoulder of the horse to feel the lines. I draw the lines of energy that flow along the edges. The lines sing to me with color. Find the line; the music will follow."
Art that Dances with the Music of a Thousand Songs
My eyes sweep over the back of the horse as if I was running a brush from his withers down his sides. It's where my eyes lead my hand as I follow the lines with a brush or stylus. Sweeping over the edges, and feeling the lines as my eye travels around the horse's shape.
When the movement of the horse guides my lines, the drawing is a success. The line holds the music. Dancing and flowing lines to lead your eyes where mine have traveled, catching the edges of movement from the shapes of the horse.
