I shall be starting my second ‘western-themed’ commission for Dan Cassidy (friend and published author of the brilliant “Pistol Man” novel, amongst others) this week. It’s of ‘Augustus “Gus” Mcrae’ from”Lonesome Dove”, and I’ve spent weeks trying to decide whether to do it in my classic monochrome style or give it a full colour boost like I did for Dan’s first piece, “Monty”. I’m now thinking full-colour.
