A pen and ink sketch of a few of the tombstones in Boot Hill cemetery. This historic ‘old west’ town bills itself as “The Town Too Tough to Die”. The sky was done with Illustrator Markers.
The whole place gives some impression of what life in the wild west was like. It’s a fun outing for locals and tourists alike. This sketch was an experiment to compose a work showing some of the most interesting tombstones and the essence of the place.
The sketch was done in my Canson Sketch book with Universal Recycled acid free paper.
