Terrific rendition of a not so happy event for England. Great work Paulette, you're a true cricket fan.

Don't like the reminders but it's an excellent piece

Excellent, and the red ball is a great idea. Pity it is factual !!!

This is my depiction of 'the ball of the Century' in the 2017 Ashes. It shows James Vince of England being bowled by a fantastic ball from Australia's Mitchell Starc. The ball hit one of the famous cracks in the final test match to be played at the Perth WACA and took a sharp deviation which completely wrong footed the batsman. The only consolation that Vince could take was that it was deemed 'unplayable' by most of the cricketing world. I have drawn it in charcoal with a little red pastel for the ball on pearl grey Canson Mi Teintes pastel paper. It is 13" x 9"
