FAR AWAY - JOSE GONZALEZ

Here's a painting I've been working on for little over a week! If there's one thing I've learned from making this, it's that I can't trust my laptop screen. It looks fine on my laptop but then when I post it anywhere and look at it on my phone, it's about 7 levels darker. I don't really know how I can fix that. I've hooked up my laptop to my TV which has helped some (and cmon, having a 20-something-inch TV as a monitor is boss af) so hopefully it looks alright for you! 

This was inspired by the song above, which was featured in Red Dead Redemption (played upon entering Mexico and gaining control of your character.) It's probably one of my favorite moments in that game, and that song is just so good. So when it came on my spotify last week, I had this idea and HAD to paint it while I still had the inspiration. I quite like how it turned out! I could maybe tweak a few things, but I'm going to call it done for now. Please let me know if it's too dark to see; I think it's at a decent enough level right now, but like I said, I can't really gauge the brightness accurately.

Thanks for stopping in!

Hell on Wheels came to mind the instant I saw your painting.  Actor Anson Mount who portrayed Cullen Bohannon is nearly a dead ringer for John Marston.  The image in the following link will tell the tale of why Hell on Wheels came to mind.  Also, I love RDR.

I absolutely love Hell on Wheels; I can definitely see why it came to mind. When I first started watching it, I couldn't get over how similar Cullen was to John; the story, in general even. Hell on Wheels is probably my favorite show, besides Supernatural. I haven't finished it yet, because I don't want it to end ^^; I was only a couple episodes from the finale, though.

Hell on Wheels came to mind the instant I saw the cowboy in front of the engine.  Actor Anson Mount played Cullen Bohannon is nearly a dead ringer for John Marston.  Also, the following image link tells it's own story and why your painting caught my eye.
