Oil on 18 x24 canvas
My son asked me to do this painting for him. It is a picture of a 1961 World Series game between the NY Yankees and Cincinnati Reds. Whitey Ford is pitching. Also in the picture is Reds first base coach (#2 in foreground), Yankees third baseman, and an umpire.
I love the different poses of each figure, how they are all awaiting the action, focusing on what's about to happen.
I used raw umber, black and white.. and a little yellow ochre to warm up the white.
