HSBC World Matchplay
I have spent an interesting few days at Wentworth recording this years event. Sponsored by HSBC I was commissioned to capture events as they unfolded and
to produce 14 paintings in a relatively short time span, that will be presented to Wentworth Golf club.
Most were sketches of the golfers themselves including Ernie Els and Paul Casey, but also
Peter Alliss .The Portrait of Alliss himself was broadcast live from the BBC as I was painting it, It was completed within the 2 hour slot that I had been given so was a real challenge against the backdrop of Sam Torrance's continually arriving refreshments.
