DESCRIPTIONPlein Air and Studio Sports paintings by Robert Becker
A collection of Robert Becker's Plein Air and Studio work.
Capturing the atmosphere of an event is my goal.
Cal Rugby Practice, Whitter Field, 2010This painting was commissioned as a parent gift to Jerry Figone as a retirement gift. Normally I would have picked a game to do but I was called on this during their last week of practice before the Title game. This painting was mostly done during two of their practices just off the playing field. I have been selling prints of this image with a portion of each sale being donated back to Cal Rugby.
