Drawing the Native American is a large part of my work.
Growing up near the Rose Bud Reservation, I was enchanted
with the Pow Wow gatherings, the dress, dancing and the unity bond
of the culture as a whole.
This is another addition to my “Native American Men Series”
Dedicated to all the Strong Men in any culture.

This is a Pastel and Prismacolor pencil drawing.
Drawn on card stock, bonded, acid free, artist drawing paper, low tooth for high quality blending ability, sprayed with a fixitive for preservation.

Thank You for viewing my art.

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.

    stunning and shining, Susan. I am getting really tired with portrait and oil painting. i will try pastel work for a while.

  • Remember it is mostly Prismacolor pencils and then adding the pastel…use a smooth paper…not much tooth, it will frustrait you, grabs the pencil and you can’t get a smooth blending surface…Good luck…b-mail me if you need any further tips..oh and the biggest secret is the initial drawing!!!
