I did a series of large-scale artwork (5 ft by 6 ft) black and white paintings for the Amway Sports Arena in Orlando Florida a couple of months ago. (Home of the Orlando Magic) I sometimes do drawings or small paintings first to see if the image is going to work well. (You can see some of those paintings further down on the blog.) I was running out of paper so I drew this basketball image of a player dunking the ball on a map.

A few years ago I  had painted a series of basketball paintings for Fox Sports Net who then used the sports art for a commercial promoting the upcoming NBA basketball games.  Since then I get requests from clients to paint one for them on commission.  So this is one of the basketball images I painted from the series of paintings I did for Fox Sports Net.

I photograph a lot of basketball players at the Venice Beach basketball courts for use as basketball images for my basketball art. As a sports artist the basketball courts are a good place for a variety of sport images. I like to work from my own photographs when painting sports images. Just a little bit up the beach is a skateboard park. I have gotten some good shots of the skateboarders but have not painted one yet.

I was sitting around and thought I would do a couple of basketball images, drawings in charcoal. One is of a Los Angeles Laker dunking the ball and the other is of a basketball player dribbling down the court. I was working of the skill of trying to show action and movement in the basketball art. I may use them as a basis for a large-scale black and white painting. If you scroll down on this blog you will see some of the black and white sports art I have done. The most recent were four paintings for the Amway Sport Center in Orlando Florida - where the Orlando Magic play.

This basketball image of a dunk shot is one of a number of basketball images I painted for the new Amway Sports stadium in Orlando (opened the first part of Oct 2010) developed an art collection of sports images. This is where the NBA Orlando Magic plays. This basketball art of a dunk shot is part of the collection. If there is anyone that happens to be in the arena and sees some of my paintings please take a photograph of the paintings and send it to me. The painting is also up somewhere else on this blog as they bought it from existing paintings.
