|Western Story Magazine, December 21, 1929 cover by Gayle Hoskins|
Another minute, and there would have been only a red dot on the ground, so i suppose this was the more interesting moment…a very well painted one at that. Gayle Hoskins manages to give the impression of a immense herd of bison very well in the limited space for the painting’s portrait orientation, one dictated by the magazine’s orientation on the newsstand.
I wonder if a different perspective – maybe over the hunter’s shoulder – would have worked better, though. Leave a comment with your thoughts.
