October 22, 2008
Yesterday I finished the big panorama of "The Morning Stage From Anton Chico." This is an establishing shot for an El Kid sequence that will run in the January issue of True West:

As I mentioned, I way overworked this puppy but I can't help it. Decent dust effects and early morning light, although the subtle twilight on the adobes in the right side of the painting are a tad crude (and I had excellent photo reference of Anton Chico that I took there in October of 1991 on a research trip for my book on Billy the Kid). Gee, I wonder what old Ben has to say about this?

"The eye of a master will do more work than both his hands."
