Today kicks off the first Q&A for Week 4 of the workshop of “Modern Masters Of Equine Art”, an online workshop Q&A sessions with some of the best equine artists today. With two Q&As each week with the likes of Tony O’Connor, Steve Messenger, Steven Lang and many others, this is sure to be several weeks full of equine art tips, techniques, marketing and more! This workshop will take place on the Facebook Group “Art Of The Horse”, run and hosted by The Flying Shetlands. All you have to do is join the group for free (if you are not a member yet!) and open the door to a world of equine art!

Today (Tuesday October 3rd 2017″#techniquetuesday”–each day has a theme/prompt), she will be answering your questions about all things watercolors, plus her tips and techniques on drawings and studies of horses and will give you a critique on one of your paintings!
