The book was for my wife and she was very pleased with it. She has gone thru it several times to get some ideas for a painting she is working on.

Great job! I found just what I was looking for in this book. The detail has been very helpful and the examples included are a joy to view. I love it for helping with my painting. My daughter loves it for the works of art by the author and others she has included. Thanks

the art in this book, including that by the author/artist, is worth the price alone. I've not had the chance to try the drawing suggested, but the information offered seems really valuable. Worth having if only for the beautiful pictures of horses.

All beginning artists, not only those who struggle with capturing equine form and movement, would benefit from this book. The chapter on selecting a medium is a particularly good primer on the qualities and characteristics of materials available to the initiate. Equine anatomy is comprehensively discussed, with clear, instructive drawings and interesting anatomical details which may help add realism to artistic renderings. The elementary concepts of equine movement are crisply defined, and the author's advice on the use of color and technique is helpful. Developing equine artists will find the book to be a great resource in refining their skills.

My original review was too polite and defied the truth regarding this book. Honestly, it is not worth the money, barely deals with the subject matter at all and when it does, it is vague and amateurish. I was so disappointed in this book that I returned it. I really do love Ms. Oelke's paintings. I only wish she had written a book about her work, her style and her techniques instead of trying to hit EVERY aspect of equine art! As a result of this "crazy quilt" attempt at writing, Ms. Oelke has managed to embarrass herself. I hope the next book is REALLY about how to paint horses and ONLY about that.

I bought this book because I love Barbara Oelke's work. Unfortunately, not much of it is in this book. Though I realize the importance of the history of equine art and in understanding the anatomy of the horse, I think too much of the book is taken up with these subjects. There is some interesting and helpful information regarding the actual drawing/painting of horses as well as tips on proportion and background considerations, but overall I think Ms. Oelke could have put together a higher level of instruction given her equine knowledge and immense talent. Considering the cost of this book, I expected a more in depth discussion/dissection of her style of painting/drawing, as well as the works of other equine artists. The bottom line is if this is your first foray into the world of equine art then this book is a scratch-the-surface start a beginner is looking for.
