RIP Tony Crozier

Last week I had the pleasure of painting the great Winston Anthony Lloyd “Tony” Cozier. The last of a breed cricket journalist, writer and a radio commentator on West Indian cricket for over fifty years. Cozier was described as having an “encyclopaedic” knowledge of cricket and apparently held legendary beer and rum parties for those lucky enough to have known him. 

Tony Cozier, last if a breed

 

As usual because of time restraints the painting is completed in acrylic and gouache as this is proving quicker than using the airbrush (and who likes cleaning them anyway).
