Fly Ball – New Picture!

Fly Ball Corinne Geertsen

Fly Ball

Well, I love his pants. This is a 1 – 2 – 3 picture where the arm on the right has just pitched the ball, the fellow in the clever plaid sports trousers has just hit it and the bird is absconding with it. Or maybe the ball was thrown and the bird caught it. I didn’t see it happen.

I painted the sky in pastel and then photographed it. I moved the photograph of the pastel sky into this picture as a background. I am always happily surprised how well pastel works in these digital composites.

The crane is luckily a slow flier, making it possible for me to snap its picture as it rose from a bank of reeds.
