The Ready to Paint series provides six tracings for readers to pull out and transfer on to the painting surface. There is one for each of the five step-by-step demonstrations, plus a bonus tracing of the inspirational painting in the Introduction section, and full instructions on how to transfer the images. People who want to learn to paint horses without relying on their drawing skills have everything they need in this book. Dave White shows his expert knowledge of painting horses with acrylics, including painting harmonious backgrounds, applying glazes and building up detail in layers. The tracings are often used more than once to re-establish the image over opaque layers of acrylic paint. The tracings and clear step-by-step photographs explain the painting process in great depth and make it easy for readers to reproduce all of the projects, which include a horse galloping on the shore, a horse portrait, a mare and foal, a show jumper and a steeplechaser.
