Detail of "Roger" in Progress

"Roger"   24" x 30"   Oil  (detail of painting in progress)

I'm currently working on an oil painting of Roger from Wortham, Texas, the second place winner in the Grey Brahman Calf Division at the Fort Worth Stock Show.  (I posted a watercolor sketch of him on February 1st).  Right after winning his ribbon, he posed for me in the late afternoon light, with the skyline of Fort Worth in the distance behind him.  I always enjoy the challenge of trying to capture the effect of sunlight late in the day -- with its warm, yellow light and its cool, blue shadows.
