‘That Taylor Catch’ – original charcoal cricket drawing

It’s been great fun drawing this cricket art, I can safely say that every part of the drawing has gone exactly how I planned it.  In part that was due to the fact that it was such a good action shot that it spoke for itself.  Also, I knew from the outset what I wanted to achieve and where the focus was going to go.  The original drawing is not for sale but I have made a run of 50 limited edition prints – if you are interested you can click here or click on the drawing to follow the link to my shop.  Please note, the wording ‘limited edition print’ will not be on your print.

Bowled Him! – original charcoal cricket drawing

cricket drawing of batsman being bowled in the ashes with steve smith

This is an original drawing.  It is completed in vine charcoal with white pastel highlights and red conte pastel for the ball.  There are many great moments in an Ashes series and this is one of them.  The figure is based on England’s Joe Root being smartly bowled.  He has misjudged a ball that has kept low.  Australia’s Steve Smith watches on intently from his slip position, yet to react to the decisive dismissal.  I wanted the fielder to remain in the background, almost a spectator to this defining moment in the game so I blended his figure discreetly into the background.  It has worked well with the chaotic crash of the wickets contrasting with the intense concentration of the fielder.
The original is now sold, limited edition fine art prints are available.  To purchase prints click on the image to be taken to my website Shop.
