Edition of 125
Howard made sure that the bear track was accurate through his characteristic research, which in this case meant a visit with the finished painting to his close friend Bob Kuhn who said the painting of the bear track was exactly right. The focal point is the light area with the bear track. From there the eye moves up to the Pinto's white and dark markings. The riders on the light field, with the shadowed pines, make a study by themselves. Consider the large tree fallen in the foreground with its angle the same as the bow cases and bows.
