Synopsis

Smoky Joe's Book of Drawing Ponies Top Tips, Techniques and Pony Stuff - Straight from the Horse's Mouth by Jennifer Bell

Everything you ever wanted to know about drawing ponies, brought to life by a sparky pony character called Smoky Joe and his friends Trevor and Rosie (all based on real ponies). Jennifer Bell's wonderful illustrations and advice on technique cover just about every form of drawing from sketching from life, through to portraits, fantasy and cartoons. She describes how to get the best results with pencils, felt tips, crayons, pens and ink and pastels - and introduces the basics of anatomy, perspective and proportion - all simplified and made fun for the younger audience.

About the Author

Jennifer Bell

Londoner Jennifer Bell began working in children's books as a specialist bookseller at Foyles, Charing Cross Road - one of the world's most famous bookstores. Here, she looked after the shop's five not-so-deadly piranha fish as well as recommending children's books to celebrities, royalty and even astronauts. After having the privilege of listening to children talk about their favourite books for many years, she started writing one of her own. Jennifer came up for the idea of The Crooked Sixpence while packing for a holiday and wishing she could just disappear inside her suitcase and be there already. The world of Lundinor is inspired by sayings from traditional English nursery rhymes as well as the stories Jennifer grew up with about the Cockney markets her grandparents used to visit.
