Rugby Mascot – England rugby original charcoal drawing

Second of my Christmas drawings to share with you. This is the trickiest composition to date and I was pretty chuffed with it. The subject of the drawing is the little boy who is the nephew of the customer  – he was lucky enough to be selected as a mascot for one of the recent England rugby matches and the drawing was a surprise Christmas present for his mum. What made it tricky was two things, firstly the boy was smaller than Chris Robshaw but I needed him to draw the viewer’s eye. I solved this by putting my trade mark bit of colour as the red rose on his shirt. The second problem was the perspective, the players following Bailey were much smaller due to the angle yet they were big grown rugby players. My artistic eye kept screeching that this was not right and I had to check the perspective a million times. Mission accomplished! It is drawn in charcoal on Canson pastel paper (smooth side) with white conte pastel highlights and the red pastel completed in Conte hard pastel.
