Western Saddle Series


The West is full of wonderful textures. One is the Western saddle in all of it’s iterations. Some simple and some extraordinarily elaborate but all have a utilitarian purpose and story.  These drawings are full sized renderings of real saddles and the stories of the people who use them.
