Capturing the Western Art Experience in Paintings and Pencil

The summer art season is winding down and things have been a little hectic at the Randall household trying to keep up. There's been a lot of drawing and painting going on as I get ready for future shows. Here are a few of my latest works for you to enjoy.

Looking Back by Annette Randall

Looking Back was an exploration of dark against light. The palomino horse with his light-colored coat was the perfect subject I needed to juxtapose against a simple dark background. While working on this project I also discovered new drawing materials that I hope have brought my work up a notch. I'm always excited to find new ways to present the horse or cowboy that bring life to the artwork and enjoyment to the viewer.

Early Spring Chase captures a moment in time showing the ranch horse who is a willing, working partner with the cowboy riding him.  I enjoyed painting on a smaller canvas for this one.

A Family Affair by Annette Randall

A Family Affair

is a favorite of mine and was a delight to paint. This little family was busy getting their four-year-old son ready to rope the mechanical calf and everybody pitched in. Throughout the hustle and bustle, the bay gelding stood as calm as could be, unruffled by all the attention. A really "bomb-proof" horse!

Let's Go Home by Annette Randall

Let's Go Home captures that moment between a cowboy and his horse when the horse waits in anticipation for his rider's cue on what to do next - hopefully for him, it will be to head back to the barn!

I'm pleased to offer these and other original pencil drawings and oil paintings. Look for more coming in 2015!

"My friend just absolutely loved the pencil sketch.  I knew she would.  The lighting was dim when I gave it to her and she really thought it was a photograph.  I sent her a link to your website and she was amazed at your talent.  You make that paper come alive! Any way we both just love your work.  It does some weird thing to my heart when I look at it."      Jeremy L, ID
