Anatomy of a Painting- Part 5 Pretty Polly

I guess I'm finished. With this painting I could keep doing details, but I'm going to stop. Here's a rough pic (my camera isn't the best- the colors aren't same as the original) that I did today of the whole painting:


The painting is too big to see the details but at 30" by 40" many of the details too small and hard to paint.



Here's the main scene: Pretty Polly pleading for her life with Willie standing over her.



Here's Pretty Polly "yonder she stands."  I decided to have her holding a red rose.


Here's the ghost of BF Shelton playing the song while the event is happening. On the right you can see part of the shovel.


Above are the lyrics; with two daisies and a vine growing up the right side.
