In between doing cards and decorations with the children in the run up to Christmas, I managed to draw a couple of pics in a style from a while ago.This time I went for an even more angular (cubist?) and abstracted image. Quite pleased with the end results - am even toying with putting a few in my Etsy/Folksy shops, 'cos the paintings don't seem to be shifting much. I prefer the old-fashioned boots and leather 'casey' ball but am not averse to doing the more garish footwear colours that players seem to favour nowadays!
Underlying sketch and inking.
Coloured using pencil crayons.
Another strong but reasonably fair challenge.
Pencil, crayon & ink on paper.
