Get Arty with Cath Kidston: How to Paint Desert Cowboy

A pinnacle archive and Cath heritage hero, our Cowboy print was originally designed in 2001 after Cath’s trip to the States inspired a creative curiosity with vintage Americana.

It’s captured the hearts and minds of our customers for decades. Wild at heart, free and roaming, it that calls to adults and kids alike. Since, its distinctive wagons, cacti and lassoing riders have scattered across our ranges many times, but make a galloping entrance once more this season, reworked as ‘Desert Cowboy’ - a stripped down, more graphic handwriting with a punchier palette.

For a rainy day adventure to the wild west, our print team have created an easy how to draw artclass for the whole family.
