Southpaw - original charcoal figurative drawing


Boxing isn't dancing, I realize, but boxers are movers and that's what attracts me with my charcoal sticks.  The drawing is on Strathmore drawing paper, 14 x 17".
Totally not related to my blog - but I'm going to say it anyway - is that I saw Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder on Sunday night.  Wonderful!   They're such fabulous musicians and I loved every minute of their performance.  See them if you can!
Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Hi Connie
I love doing sports sketches because of movement. Have a look at my other blog http://paulettesportsartist.blogspot.co.uk/ and you'll see what I mean.

To me, boxers are like dancers...this is beautifully painted,Connie!! As far as Ricky Skaggs...one of my favorites...When I was in Tennessee, we went to the Grand Ole Opry and saw The Oakridge Boys and Tricia Yearwood and "Whispering Bill Anderson"!!! What a show!!!
