In India, cricketing is great passion, and almost a way of life for some.
I remember listening to radio commentaries of cricket during my college days, which has greatly contributed to the popularity of cricket in India even to this day. Today there are exclusive TV channels dedicated to the cricket game.
It is only natural that I decided to do a cricket painting to add to my 'Body Language' series.
'The Batsman' is an acrylic painting of size 12"x16"done in fauvist style with vivid colors. Here the focus is on the body language of the batsman who is leaning forward, poised to face the ball. But the batsman's bat is not actually visible except in the shadow, indicating its presence.
