Edward


Charcoal
framed charcoal drawing of a junior cricket player hitting a ball by cricket artist

Drawn in charcoal with a little red pastel for the ball, this was a delight to draw.  Edward was only six when the reference photo was taken, his cricket clothes and bat looked far too big for him yet he hit the ball fiercely.  I wanted to retain that oversized clothes look as his head barely reaches above the stumps.
