I originally drew this as a bit of fun. It was a moment of unusual reaction and passion from England’s captain Joe Root. Reaching a trying century in an ODI series against India he managed to secure it and an England win off the last ball.
Keeping the drawing loose with focus on the movement and drama of the situation it is drawn totally in charcoal on lily white pastel paper.
The drawing is available to buy along with limited edition prints from my website here
First part of some portrait practice. If you never see the finished drawing it’s because I’ve ditched it. I’ve set myself a real challenge with this one but something I need to do in order to keep improving. Drawn in charcoal
