I’m so pleased to be starting my next commission especially as it is cricket and I haven’t drawn a cricket drawing for a while. Particularly I’m loving this because it’s a bowler and I certainly haven’t drawn a bowler for quite a while. This is for Christmas so it really needs to be finished this week. The first application of charcoal to mark out the shadows has gone really well and you can see the cricket bowler is in full bowling action. The next step is to go over each area carefully and define the shadows and mid tones.
