20 x 12 digitally painted disposable pen sketch
I've been doing a bit of reading lately about the history of some
of the original North Americans. Usually I like to sketch out something
related to what I am perusing so I have done a quick rendering of Red Cloud,
a Sioux war leader who took charge of the allied indian forces from 1866
to 1868 in their campaign against the Bozeman trail and Fort Phil Kearny.
Afterward Red Cloud became a champion of peace and an able and
unscrupulous politician who always managed to stay on top despite
endless government policy changes.
