Mixed Media

Image (49)-001

“Urban Cowboys”

I started this picture months ago with acrylic,and for a long time it was going nowhere, then I decided to use ink to outline the cowboys and  pastel to fill in the foreground, which made it easier to get the effect of rough ground.

I used as reference pictures I found on the internet, the idea being that with so many unfinished housing estates in the country they would become playgrounds for young people and inevitably become more desolate as time went by.
