- Love the cute and clever interpretations. I actually learned a lot. I very much like that she shows how to color with different medium, not many books do this
- I love to draw horses and Jennifer Bell's book on drawing horses is among my favorites. So Imagine my delight when I gound she has created another drawing book -- this time on drawing ponies (small horses). And once again, pages artfully crammed full of inspiring drawings, humorous renditions and FUN! I love that she shows the feet (ohh the feet) in various poses (not just plopped in grass) and WHY the legs have bony protrusions.Covered is perspective, dawing mediums from crayon to pastel and pen and ink to name 3. Really, this is a book any horse or pony lover with cherish. It is an excellent book to learn how to draw from although if you are new to drawing you might want another step by step book. It is great because it shows how to get expression in the horse or pony, how to show its emotions and also how it looks running, standing or just plain eating grass.This is a book you won't part with. :)She also has a website which is a companion to this book.
