Real Cowboy

“Real Cowboy” digital painting by John Foster Dyess

This digital painting is based on a photograph that I took of a cowboy re-enactor at the Stockyards in Fort Worth ,Texas. I placed the photograph in the software Photoshop and using various brushes painted over the photograph.There was an automobile on the street that I removed. I painted over the entire photograph with Photoshop brushes.
I made a 24″ x 30″ photo- print of this image and drew over it with pastel pencils.
Art prints of various sizes , T shirts, pillows and mugs with this image can be purchased on


The photograph that I took that was the starting point of the Real Cowboy painting.
