More runners

Just finished this, acrylic  and black fineliner on acrylic paper, quite please with the overall effect but made a bit of a mess of the right hand front runners face. The background was painted using a matt glazing medium, but I don’t think I am getting it right. I keep practising glazes but I never seem to achieve quite what I want.
I have started a version of this one in coloured pencil ,will post it when finished.
Just a reminder that if you are in the Midleton area between 5th and 10th September, call into INA McCARTHY for FLOWERS in the Main St, where 20 something of my art class members are exhibiting.


  1. I like it. It really shows movement.

  2. I like the background, it looks like they're running on a wet road!

  3. Awesome! Love the dynamics of the drawing, and love the background too.

  4. I actually like the background the way it is.It somehow makes the runners seem more 'alive' than the photo you used as a reference.

  5. It looks great! Unusual subject, and very cool result! Love the colors and the background.
