Three to Go seems like a tongue-in-cheek title. If the cowboys are roping calves and think they only have three to go before day’s end, they need to look behind them in the shadows at right, where a cow and a fourth calf hide out. The canvas is classic Reynolds. High key light on soft forms lets color do the work of line, harmonizing the composition. But there are still four to go.
