Next original cricket drawing – part 1

 
It’s time to do another cricket drawing. I love this shot. The batsman has prepared a sweep and is left awkwardly  dangling whilst the ball takes his wicket.  It’s a great moment.  I’m drawing it in pastel, currently 6 grey tones are involved.  The focus is on bat, ball and the batsman’s head position, the rest is like smoke and I’ll keep soft.  After putting down rough shadow shapes I am beginning to place more detail on it. The ball position you can probably predict as too are the bails.

Eureka Cricket! – Brendon McCullum original drawing

Now complete this is the original charcoal drawing on one of my favourite cricketers Brendon McCullum.  He is such a gritty player and so valuable in today’s cricket.  Mis-timing the shot somewhat the bat has left his hands, but his whole relaxed body makes it appear that he has casually flung his bat into the air.  I’ve therefore named the piece Eureka!
It is drawn in willow charcoal on grey Strathmore paper, the piece has conte and white charcoal highlights.

Mitchell Johnson | The Mitchell Bouncer | original charcoal cricket drawing

Completed in charcoal and white pastel this is an original drawing.  The drawing was completed as part of an illustrators’ competition in All Out Cricket.  The drawing will be featured in next month’s issue.  Of the list of suggested subjects was Mitchell Johnson’s grievous bodily harm – this is the subject I chose.  The drawing depicts the intense focus and determined strike of the Australian fast bowler. On the receiving end the batsman can do little more than duck out of the way.

The original drawing is now sold, limited edition prints are available to buy from my, click on the image to follow the link.
