My latest rodeo pencil drawing is long over due. Ever since creating the Bull Rider Rodeo Artwork, I've been asked again and againg to come up with a Barrel Racing theme. Well, finally, here it is! This Barrel Racer Cowgirl artwork was a great deal of FUN to draw! I'm glad I finally got this one to the drawing table. More rodeo pictures will be following soon!
I have my friend Deb Simon to thank over, and over, and over again for the use of her rodeo photographs and harness racing shots as reference material for my pencil drawings. Deb Simon Photography is the place to shop for Wildlife, Wild Bird and other nature photos!
This harness racing art drawing has also been on my "frequently requested" list! My other Standardbred horse prints are nearly sold out, so this piece is finished not a day too soon. This drawing features not so much an actual race, as the “dreams” of harness racing greatness. The horse mane swirling into the track emphasizes the dreams concept and gives the drawing a more whimsical style.
