Artwork Description

Pencil on paper

Signed on the front.

The Richmond team depictedhere is from the 1889 VFA season. It was Richmond's fifth year as a club and second only wearing the now famous yellow & black.

By researching my subject thoroughly, I discover that which is often unclear or obscured in the old photographs and reunite the people, structures and background to their rightful place.
The full colour rendering of the scene breathes life into the historical black & white record of the football past and allows the contemporary viewer the opportunity to to witness the moment as it would have appeared to those who were there.
