“American Horse”

Inspiration & Technique

Drawn on archival gritted paper which can hold up to 40 layers. Then, layer by layer, I applied soft pastels. To achieve detail, I drew each and every line with soft pastel pencils.

Inspired by my heritage; I’m part Native American. I had always wanted to do painting of a warrior. I looked up Native American warriors and American Horse really stuck out to me. He educated himself when wars were raging and decided to go to Congress to get a peace treaty signed. I admire his will for peace and his efforts to educate himself instead of fighting a battle they couldn’t win at the time.
