Wrapped it up this evening.

The buckle was particularly problematic, what with all the scratches, etc. The same with the metal plates (on the spurs) which have lots of little pits, each of which has to have a shiny edge as well as a shadow.

A larger version can be found on my gallery:

Enjoy!

Roger- Great painting! You have amazing observation skill for detail, but still hold the major shapes together. I'll look at more. :thumbsup: -Mark

The detail on this is wonderful and the subject matter is as well. Are you doing prints from it? This would sell like crazy to the rodeo crowd.:thumbsup:

We should be selling prints soon. Want to get a few more paintings going before I officially "open".

Thanks again, all. I am so busy with work right now that I haven't had time to paint in about a week or so. Hope to get back to it soon.

You certainly did solve those problems with the metal buckle - it's amazing. The colors in this painting are right on for that southwest/cowboy look - old leather browns, yellows and oranges.

Very well done indeed. Good use of contrasts and values. Top shelf stuff here.

Peace,

I agree, your very talented. Your painting almost looks like a soft photograph because the great detail. The little details are awesome and your work is a joy to look at!

Roger, I just stumbled upon your gallery and have to say that the detail in all your art work is outstanding. I hope to get a chance to visit the gallery when I'm down in Bandera at the end of the month. Great job again!

By the way, good luck with your robots.:thumbsup:

Coming from Dallas, originally from the Corsicana area. I have a good friend that owns a ranch about halfway between Kerrville and Bandera and we hunt the last weekend of the deer season there. Regardless of taking a deer or not, it's one of the most relaxing trips I take during the year. Something about the Texas Hill country that puts me at ease with the world around me.
