The Original

The spinner! There's a quiet hush and a pause that goes around a cricket ground when the spinner comes on for the first time.  After the cavalry has finished charging in, the spinner takes up position, a hop skip and with a mystery that no one quite understands, the ball  goes looping over to the batsman.  The extraordinary and completely unnatural action of a spin bowler has always fascinated me, its the perfect subject for a cricket mad figurative artist...
This is Jack Leach of Somerset CCC, I watched him play against Lancashire earlier this season at Old Trafford, sketching moments in the match and taking photographs has lead to this final drawing.  It's actually quite rare to get good images of bowlers so I was delighted to be able to capture exactly the right piece I wanted. 
The piece is unframed but is mounted in a soft white mount with a backing board and sealed in a clear plastic bag.  It is sized 14" x 10" (the artwork) 18" x 14" (in its mount) It will fit easily into a frame sized 18" x 14".  If you wish for me to arrange the framing then select the option for original framed.  It will then be framed in my preferred frames which are heavy solid wood frames stained black.  These frames are handmade to order so you will need to allow 2-3 weeks for the frames to be made and for me to frame your artwork.
