“My greatest teacher has been the horse, observing and sketching horses in every kind of circumstance made me the painter I am.
That’s how I learned anatomy and style and perfected my sketching.”

“I couldn’t have learned what I did from some teacher in art school, I learned about horses by sleeping, freezing, thirsting and starving with them.
I learned by doing; I paint what I know.” 

–Olaf Wieghorst
