ARTWORK

Native Americans

==================

I don't claim to be an artist but I do like to draw. I do a lot of it now that I am retired. I am pretty much home bound and drawing is relaxing for me. I do all of my drawing with a mechanical pencil loaded with 2B leads. PLAIN AND SIMPLE - THAT IS MY WAY. 

At last count, I had almost 400 sketches stashed away in my digital achieves. Some good, some bad, most about average

- all done by me. I typically turn out 2 or 3 new sketches every day. 

I will refresh this page often with new drawings.

EARLY MORNING BUFFALO HERD: A scout sights a small herd of buffalo.

 It presents good prospects for having fresh meat by supper time.

 
CONTROLLING THE RAMPAGING COMANCHE'S: A cavalry sergeant is ready to lead a group of troops in to ambush a hostile Indian camp. There are no warriors in the camp now, but it is known to be a safe haven for them. It must be eliminated. Very soon, all of the Indians pictured here will be dead - carcasses left on the open prairie for the coyotes to salvage:  a boy of 12, a girl of 14, a crawling toddler, a 3 year old girl, an old man, a woman (the children's mother) and a boy of 5.  
A proud old Chief.

The cavalry has arrived.

We have all read about the savageness of the Indians. In retaliation, our forces often staged raids against the Indian villages. Often, all of the men, women and children present were killed in these raids,  done by the U.S. Army Cavalry. The raids usually happened while the able bodied warriors were away.

 
Age and experience matter. .
