Rugby practice


oil on panel 6x9"
felt very privileged when i wondered into this little scene last evening.
the rugby pitch in Builth Wells,with the very last burst of the low sun,
the sounds of the boys killing each other...
and all i had to do was quickly put down some colors
.

The lovely quality of light belies the violence of the game. My son plays rugby and I cringe every time I see him play.
