Cripple Creek: Rough Pics


I finished my painting of Cripple Creek last night. Here are some rough pics I shot with my camera (click to enlarge). I thought the painting would be easy but it wasn't. I had to include a banjo picker and singer in the background yet not disturb the main scene. I'll have some good pics in a few weeks that really show the colors. Hope you like it.

The main scene above features, "Goin' up to Cripple Creek Goin' in whirl, Goin' up to Cripple Creek to see my girl." The other verse is, "Roll my britches to my knees, I'll wade ol' Cripple Creek when I please."

Below is the full painting (click to enlarge):
