60. The Famer and the Rancher

8x10 oil/panel

I really liked the apparent good-natured conversation going on between these two fellas, who seem to 
typify their respective professions so well...  That old stock trailer with its fading, chipping paint was pretty cool too.
I did not do a "drawing" for this... just sketched in with some thin paint the basic placement of the figures, and then tried to find the right color for basic shadow, and basic light, on each object. I'm pretty pleased with the farmer, not quite as much so with the rancher...

This tells a nice story, and I really like the gesture of the two men, and your brushstrokes!
I'm a city gal- which is the farmer, and the rancher?
