This drawing of a modern cowhand by Robert Shufelt has all of the elements that the artist is known for… precise detail, realistic authenticity, and the ability to capture the essence of his subject. The drawing has a photographic realism, but also projects a three dimensional depth.
Prior to moving his family to Wickenburg, Arizona, in 1975 where he began his career as a professional fine artist, Shufelt worked for 15 years as a top illustrator in Chicago, Illinois.
