“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.
