Finishing the Foliage for the Fort Worth Stockyards

Fort Worth Stockyard Foliage

I have nearly finished the backdrop foliage for this Fort Worth Stockyard setting of a twice-daily longhorn cattle drive through the streets.  I’m looking forward to the challenge of rendering the massive longhorns.  Nevertheless, with them being in the foreground, I feel that my next step is working on the cowboys and their mounts.  I’m also looking forward to the brick street and shadows beneath.  I think this composition has real potential.

Thanks for reading.

    Looking good, David! I’m following this and looking forward to see how it all works out. A challenge does feel good, doesn’t it?! I have confidence you’ll do well. I’m working on a memorial picture for a dear 8 month old baby boy. Sad, but yet it’s rewarding to work on. I’m planning to gift it to the parents. BJR

      Thank you, BJR. Thanks for the vote of confidence. And all the best to you as you labor in love over the memorial portrait. I have known the profound sadness of working on one of those, and will never forget the deep gratitude of the parents. Thank you for doing that for them. You are a gift.
