Welcome to the Art of
Southwestern, Western and Wildlife Art
|In this high tech world, Manuel Franco strives to keep the old traditions alive. His subject matter as well as his use of mediums is diverse. Although his subjects include Westerns, Wildlife, Portraiture, Native American and Still Life's, he increasingly concentrates on Southwestern scenes. Manuel works in oil, pencil, pastel and bronze, but his first choice is watercolor because this medium lends itself to the fine detail that he puts into his work.|
