Cracked Leather

Just finished this little 11×14 drawing, titled “Cracked Leather”.Cracked Leather

What I like about this graphite drawing is the depth, sharpness of the black shadows from the chaps against the blue jeans, the crispness of the white background against the aluminum pole, the horses’ head and the soles of the boots.

If you’ve been to a horse roping, cattle branding, team sorting event or just for a trail ride; then you’ve seen this scene before. And to me, that’s what artwork should be. Something tangible that we’ve all seen before and can relate to.
