A Football Jones

8" x 10" Oil on Panel - SOLD

Alabama freshman sensation Julio Jones is number 8. Julio came to the Crimson Tide with much acclaim and high expectations and he not only lived up to those high hopes he exceeded them. All SEC Freshman of the year, he has speed, size, great hands and a nose for the football.

Julio is my first oil painting and it was done in one session (approximately 3 hours). I have wanted to dip into the classic medium for several years and I have finally done it. The painting is loose and while I am happy with the way it turned out, I hope to be able to refine the way I handle the paint in the future. It was fun and you can expect to see more rendering in oil in the future.
