More OK Prep

August 16, 2011

Found another old painting of the OK Corral sequence, this one done in 1981 (I really wanted to come out with my version during the centennial of the fight, 1881-1981, but although some of these scenes made it into Arizona Highways in 1986, I didn't make it out with my full version until 1993).

It shows Ike Clanton, far right, commiserating with his cowboy pards, while Frank McLaury peers up Fremont Street to see if the Earps are coming down. Although I missed it with the big building to the rear of the lot, I like the horse and saddle.

Meanwhile, did another prep sketch for the Deep In The Lot painting I want to do:

Still working hard on new OK Corral images, but shifted gears this morning and cleansed my palette with a San Carlos twilight desert scene I call "Curly Offered Up the Grizzly Skull to the Moon."
