"Life of roping calves for competition"
This artwork as a painting of "Life of roping calves for competition”, by the rodeo King of the Ropers and western artist William MacLeod.
First, the picture of the calf was originally drinking milk and was originally drawn by artist Marilyn Domer from a "Ranchin' and Rodeoin' Coloring Book (that was published in 2020)".
Second, the picture of the background was originally a roping steer that was also originally drawn by artist Marilyn Domer from a "Ranchin' and Rodeoin' Coloring Book (that was published in 2020)".
I had first scanned and photocopied the illustration of the calf and pasted it into a different background from the coloring book and I decided to paint this portrait of a roping calf, as I was thinking that roping calves must be native, Brahma, or a cross breed and weigh between 220 and 280 pounds (100 and 127 kilograms) and can only do about 30 runs before it is considered too large for the competition and can be small and hornless, so a single man with a well-trained horse can perform the task at hand.
When I was painting this image is that when I was painting this portrait of the calf for a roping competition, this painting shows that a Black Baldy is a type of crossbred beef cattle produced by crossing Hereford cattle with a solid black breed, usually Aberdeen Angus in an attempt to produce smaller calves and reduce difficulties in calving. It is characterized by a white face similar to the Hereford, but the red body color of the Hereford is replaced by black from the Angus.
You can tell right there in this image is that background colors are more beautifully striking colors.
I was thinking that this really just looks like another one of my best absolutely realistic images that I ever did as if this is a portrait of a beautiful tie-down roping horse, as if this would've been perfect for a 7 page picture book called "Tie-Down Ropin' Competitions Picture Book", as if inspired by real tie-down roping competition of all the equipment and gear scenes, your cowkids ropers will enjoy this authentic picture book in paperback. From the grand entry to roper boots and tie-down roping competition to roping the calf dummy, this picture book will ring true with real tie-down roping cowkids and give those who only dream of being cowboys an authentic glimpse inside the western way of life, as if the book is 9x11 and is 7 pages.
