Ron's Bronco

As you know, I don't sketch much on the Southwest Forum on wetcanvas.com. http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?p=20685859#post20685859 I usually post paintings there, which I don't have at the moment. At least not new ones.   I sketched from photos that are posted in the Challenge this time by Ron Swearingen.  http://ronsart-wyo.blogspot.com/

This is a quick sketch from a photo, no broncos in my world at the moment!  I used a Micron 03 in the large sketchbook.  Maybe fifteen minutes???  It is about 8 x 10 inches.  The cowboy had long hair.  I should have sketched him with short hair and a hat flying away.  Oh well, another time.

Your bronco is exellente! It shows real drawing ability.

All semster I harped on my students to draw what they saw and to use relationships within the drawing. We were required to give a final, although lots of kids were exempt. So, made copies of a face (black and white) cut the face down the middle, and had the kids draw half the face - the face with the most value and shading. Some did well. Others, well, I felt a failure as a teacher. Then my really good art student said, "You are not a failure. Those kids just think they can't draw, so they don't try." I know that is true. They don't even really look at what they are drawing. We will go at it again next semester. I will not worry about it for the next two weeks.

Jennifer Rose, thank you and you have a great Christmas and holiday season.
