Is he as friendly as he looks?
Like the setting and I love his turquoise and his saddle. The things that must make him; "him".
Nice work Deb!
(Was all work from life?)

Thanks! Yes, a very nice gentleman. Teaches biology at Denton college, raises horses and is a grandfather.
I took the photos, did two sketches from life and then the rest was studio work. (shhhh, don't tell the Ryder Studio) It was great fun to put in all of the extras, plus a great face to work on!
