Highbrow Jackson

This is one of my Starbucks series drawings. It was done first in pencil on black paper and then follwed with oil pastel. The subject is Highbrow Jackson from a photo taken during the 2011 Futurity 2YO Sales. I expect to see him as a finalist in the Futurity next year. I recently went to a preview at the Dallas Auction Gallery and saw many great cowboy paintings (others too). A painting of a cowboy stopping and turning his horse as a steer ran by caught my eye. It was done by Otis Dozier in 1976. I was thinking of the that painting when I drew this.
