As promised, here are a couple of the go-for-broke versions of my painting "Ghost Riders In The Sky." First up, this is where I left off yesterday:
Daily Whip Out:
"Ghost Riders #4"
This morning, I thought to myself, maybe I ought to refer to the actual lyrics one more time. Okay.
Genius Lyrics to A Genius Song
And here, for your inspiraton and my edification are some of the key descriptive words to the song which I knew I had to at least try to squeeze in: "When all at once a mighty herd of red-eyed cows he saw. . .their brands were still on fire and their hooves were made of steel, their horns were black and shiny. . ." and then if that isn't enough missing detail, "horses snorting fire. . ."
Oh, crap. Okay, here are two wing ding attempts to corral all this dramatic and ridiculous detail. I know. A little over done, but that's my process. Keep going until you've wrecked everything!
Daily Whip Out: "The Devil's Herd"
Black horns, check; red-eyed cattle, check; and that damn cowboy's horse is even snorting fire; check.
Took one more swing at it about fifteen minutes ago, but it went nowhere.
