That is why I started painting...to do western art, then I realized just how hard it really is to make it believable, so I ventured off onto other things. I don't think I could ever do the cowboys, cowgirls, horses, etc. justice but I love to try.
The young man had no idea how excited I got when I saw he had on a white shirt! That is what watercolorists look for!
This is done on 300 lb Hot Press Arches Paper, with transparent watercolors.
