When I look for books on art, I look first for books that reflect my subject interests. I want to see how other artists are using my favorite mediums to draw my favorite subjects.

Cynthia Knox has recently published a complete guide to drawing horses with colored pencil. Whether you’re an advanced artist and want to add equine art to your portfolio or are just getting started with horses and colored pencils, you’ll want to take a look at this book.

The book includes chapters on basics like drawing materials and supplies, a few of the more popular breeds of horses, and tips for photographing horses.

There are also chapters highlighting faces, hooves, manes, and tails.

And what drawing book would be complete without step-by-step demonstrations? Those are usually my favorite part! This book has at least three showing you how Cynthia draws a complete picture plus detail step-by-step demos.
