Cowboy stuff

Here in Denver, January means National Western Stock Show and Rodeo.  So now in honor of that, I’m creating my take on all things cowboy, horses, or western something. 

There’s a couple of reasons why I like doing these subjects which I’ll expound upon in the next few posts.  Here’s an example of one reason: there’s just something attractive about the shape of a cowboy hat.  Maybe it’s when the lights and shadows show the undulating curves.  I just like the form (and if there’s a cool cowboy underneath, well, so the better!).

For the last few months, I’ve been working pretty small (usually 8″x10″)  This one is huge in comparison.  Pretty fun to use really big brushes!

    The white hat, that’s the good guy, right? Looks good to me, you captured the soft look of the felt and got the tilt just right making him a bit mysterious. Love it.
