Gloss:
Remington created an interpretation of a profiled, windswept figure through his use of line and narrative. This profiled equestrian was a compositional element he used in several works. The effect of rain pouring down is achieved by using atmospheric perspective. The density of the wet sky weighs upon the rider through the use of values layered in the ink wash. The cowboy solemnly works through the rain as he helps herd cattle over the plains.
