Play Ball!

It is summer and summer means baseball.  From the time I was a kid I loved the summer and listening to baseball on the radio.  It is even more fun to go to a big league game and be a part of the crowd and the excitement.

I need to learn shading, perspective and other techniques, but in the limited time I have to draw I am enjoying the process.  And what better than to draw a baseball and bat.

  1. I am really impressed with your drawing, Roger! Who knew? I tried drawing once. I managed to draw a cracked egg and a lopsided coke bottle. Decided my art is in my writing, not in drawing. 🙂

    1. Yes, I struggle with getting the dimensions correct, but an eraser and persistence helps. Perhaps drawing is the same as writing in that we have to keep practicing it to improve. Thanks for the encouraging words.
