Re: #23 "Mule Train at the Grand Canyon"

Wow, this is fabulous from composition to execution. You've captured light, shadows & highlights brilliantly and the detail in the folds of the jacket & the assorted ropes pull the eye to just the right spot. Really awesome work! I wouldn't want to be on that mule though!

Wowweeee... beautifully handled. Love the canyon wall 'rock' and the mules hide and muscling, shadows and lights! COOL!

Fantastic piece, beautiful work on that mule - he looks as if you could actually stroke him

Re: #23 "Mule Train at the Grand Canyon"

Wow this is great! May I ask how long it took to complete this work in terms of number of hours spent? It has so much details and I am sure demands so much patience!

Re: #23 "Mule Train at the Grand Canyon"

I think everyone has said it so I will just quadruple all the bravo's and accolades. The mule is perfect, rider too and I love the subtle way you handled the others trailing behind. Every nuance is just stunning and your color vivid and clean, no crits from me, cept maybe that it's not hanging on my wall.
Once again you are one amazing artist!!
