On The Inside Corner
original by Peter Yesis
oil on canvas board

I couldn't think of a good name... I started with Baseball No.2 or it could have been: Strike Two or Ball Two or Ball in a Box. But On the Inside Corner was the only one I liked.

I kept this one a little looser than the first, also used thicker paint. I was more interested in the light than I was in the detail. Some of the best practice pieces come when you don't care about detail. They always end up having more feeling to them.

Peter, I agree with you, this is SO WONDERFUL! The light, the texture, the battered sense of the ball. You really captured it. Great way to start the day. thanks

On the Inside Corner is a perfect name. As the announcer often says when calling the game, 'he is really painting that corner'...
