Urban Art: Longhorn Among the Skyscrapers

Naturalist illustrator Deborah Kaspari reports a remarkable vision in her blog: “Deep in the heart of Oklahoma City, a stockyard sprang up today, surrounded by modern, glassy skyscrapers, and there was much mooing. I sketched longhorn cattle and wished I had on a pair of cowgirl boots or a pink denim jacket. I would have blended in better.

This was sketched at the Longhorn World Championship show in Oklahoma City where I spent a morning quick-drawing cattle with a little watercolor wash over the pencil lines. Fast gesture drawing catches things that don’t stay still and blind contour drawing is useful, too – move your pencil across the paper without taking your eyes off the subject. You can capture the essence – or at least a good scribble.” The link to Debby’s blog: http://bit.ly/1hb8ryd
