Wicket Keeper Drawing

This week I have been completing my wicket keeper drawing.  I took a break from it as I was not getting a likeness but managed to complete it successfully.

Here is a video of is progress….

The finished piece is not available to purchase at the moment but limited edition prints (50) are available.  Only prints bought directly from myself as the artist will be the correct quality, signed and dated by me.   The image below is of a lower resolution version for the internet.  Click here to go to my website shop.

This week I am working on a commission, it is a surprise wedding anniversary present for the subjects husband (he doesn’t really use social media so we are ok for updates.)

This is drawn with Nitram charcoal on Canson Mi Teintes paper. The size is 16 x 12 inches.  Here are some progress drawings…..

 I have also produced some short videos to show actual drawing at speed..

The piece is not yet complete, its on hold whilst I await some more reference photographs.


Portrait Drawing

Back to portrait drawing from life on Friday morning, although this time there was limited time so I had to take photos and draw it in my studio.  I have been dying to do this one as it is a real challenge.  Steve has glasses and a beard, a double challenge for a portrait artist..

I have begun work on this one which should be complete in the week.


New Pastel Cat Drawing

Itching to get back into colour I have selected this drawing of a cat that I’ve kept hold of for a while.  I’ve changed the cat from its traditional tortoiseshell to a play with colours.  I wanted to contrast the emerald eyes with sapphire ears.  Here’s a clip video of the progress….

The completed piece has proved to be very popular.  It is available in my website shop as well as a limited number of fine art prints…

T20 Rocket – progress charcoal cricket drawing

This is mid progress, there is still alot of work to do.  Currently there is too much charcoal on the paper so the next major job is to do lots of blending to create mid tones, the face needs more work and then the wicket keeper – who will remain in shadow but still needs defining.

Progress Drawing

Wicket keeper drawing – charcoal cricket wicket drawing of ‘Out!’

Completed in charcoal and white chalk this is a drawing modelled on England’s Jos Buttler, it shows a dramatic ‘run out’  This degree of movement is a challenge for any cricket artist, its necessary to ensure that only the parts in motion are shown to do so, with the rest being static.
