Tennis Ball original mixed media painting by Polly Jones
Tennis Ball by Polly Jones
I know, what an original title! This is a little 6" square commission I did a while ago. It was meant as a present for someone being taken to the U.S. Open, so I didn't want to show it beforehand. At first I had no idea how I could make a picture of a ball interesting. It ended up being a lot of fun. I used the shadows to interplay with the s curves inside the ball; this helped offset the static nature of a circle inside of a square.
