As I was scrolling through recent articles to illustrate, I found this great article about watching sport on the television, and how it can escalate your heart rate, which is actually good for you, crazy stuff! This may be a football game or an exciting Olympic sport for instance. Does that mean it’s ok to watch sport all day? Well maybe not, but it was an interesting article all the same, which drew me to producing an illustration for it. After developing this within my sketchbook and sketching out certain ideas which took my fancy, I came up with the idea and final artwork, which is shown below. With this painting, I wanted to experiment with using expressive marks for the background, which I particularly enjoyed, as it gives the image interesting aspects, and is not all completely perfect. As you can see, I also only worked with greens, yellows and reds for the image, as there the colours which work really well altogether.
