I was commissioned to paint the pitch and clubhouse scene by the club Chairman, to be presented at the re-opening of the club, following their extensive outfield renovation project.
It was a challenge to paint as the outfield of the cricket pitch had just been completely turned over to be replaced during a huge renovation project by the club, so when taking photos of the scene, the pitch was bare earth and the trees were not in leaf!
So I relied on a number of my photos, plus photos from the club and online to piece the scene together. I aimed to portray the view of village cricket on a beautiful day in high summer and I hope that’s what I have achieved!
Limited edition and open edition prints are available from my Giclée Prints For Sale page.
