Banks of The Ohio; Close-ups

Monday, February 15, 2010 10:25:53 AM

Hi,

Finally finished Banks of the Ohio, another murder ballad, and I'm going to start on John Henry this week. It's difficult to portray the fight scene in a realistic way- I show him pulling a knife and forcing her to fall back into the water where she eventually drowns. I've used a pink pastel pallette to soften the image.

Here are a few close-ups:


Here's the villan sing the song 
 


I asked my love to take a walk...


He pulls a knife and plunges her into the Ohio River


Stood and watched as she floated down...


The lyrics
