“Prairie Dust & White”
Graphite on paper 6″x 24 ”
by Lee Teter
As covered wagons churn the earth into dust along the Bridger Trail to Bozeman ( at present Copper Mountain, Wyoming) an antelope watches from a distance. The travelers had learned weeks ago that an antelope was faster than any animal they ever knew (Lee has seen them run more than fifty miles per hour). He was safe from their fastest horses and from men too busy or tired to hunt.
This small drawing is far to subtle to reproduce well. The dust merges with air without a sense of boundary and the difference between the white muzzle of the antelope and the wagon top passing in the distance can be felt more than seen or measured; so we can forgive the digital age for not being capable of duplicating the subtle value changes in this drawing.
THE CONFINEMENT OF DARKNESS
Graphite on paper
Appr. 5.5 x 14.25 inches
(Paper 12.5 x 18 inches)
This is a figure study for a large drawing. Lee’s first choice in art is drawing and he is working to present a theme in graphite that he has already painted in oils. His purpose is to compare the power of drawing to that of painting. This figure is one of four in the picture. The others, including several versions of the same figures, will be available soon.
Study for “Horse Guard”
This pencil and chalk drawing is made on a heavy sheet of pale grey paper (appr. 22″ x 30″). The paper is imperfect but has no major flaws. The figure of the Rocky Mountain horse guard is about 18 inches tall.
