Most of Traylor's subjects are drawn with careful attention to their placement on the cardboard as well as the overall compositional balance. This bull is placed so that his front hoof rests upon the irregular upward cut in the cardboard. Also, the curve of the cardboard is echoed in the gentle curve of the bull’s head. Traylor's attention to detail results in the drawing’s overall harmonious composition.
