Beautiful Russian animalist artist Viktoria Markelova is passionate about painting horses and other animals. It all started long ago and surprisingly romantic. As a young girl, Viktoria Markelova once saw a horse and fell in love with this beautiful creature. Parents bought for her toy horses and pictures of horses, and Viktoria increasingly dreamed of these animals. Coming to visit her grandfather, an artist, Viktoria always asked him to draw a horse. She herself was gradually beginning to paint. Her first independent drawings of horses appeared after Viktoria was given a book “How to Draw a Horse” and she worked hard to repeat each picture until it was obtained. Seeing the success of the girl, the parents decided to help her. In 1994, Viktoria has successfully passed the entrance exams to the children’s art school in Prechistenka, Moscow. In art school, she spent four years and a topic for her thesis was, of course, the horses.
