“Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing.”

Hitting is timing.  Pitching is upsetting timing.  ~Warren Spahn


Over the weekend, I took a Nelson Cruz piece and took it a little larger, and put it on a stretched canvas.  I think it turned out well.

Here is a sneak peek at the process.

Step 1, draw out the rough image and cut.  Cut, cut, and cut somemore.  You can see where I messed it up and had to repair it with tape.  Once you’ve spent as much time on drawing it out and the cutting, making a mistake makes you really want to fix it rather than start over.

Step 2, getting paint on the canvas, for this one just a light white base laid down to help the dark blue pop off the canvas a touch.

Step 3, was adding a bit of blue and letting it dry.

Then another one was done.  Each of these is 16″x20″ on stretched canvas.

Oh yeah, the Rangers are in the World Series too.

One thought on ““Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing.””

  1. When I saw the headline for this, I thought maybe this would be an image of him missing the ball in right field.

    I like how you connected the 17 to the rest of the design/illustration.
