FOREVER YOUNG, Peter Young
Acrylic on Canvas
60 cm high x 60 cm wide
FOREVER YOUNG is a portrait of Peter Young who, among many different jobs, was on the Cricket Board giving advice to many cricketers. From playing cricket himself, he switched to holding brushes and pencils. His artwork is beautiful and detailed.
I admire his determination to work hard in order to grow and to develop as a draftsman and a painter.
The pallette I chose for this portrait is based and inspired by his bow tie.
