Drawing Ink, Watercolour Paint on Watercolour Paper
On the 4th October 2017, Sharp had a once in a lifetime privilege to meet Sir Bobby Charlton, one of England’s great sporting legends, who was part of the 1966 World Cup-winning team. Sharp created a painting using watercolours and drawing ink and attended an England Football game where the FA presented Sir Bobby Charlton Sharps painting in the Sir Bobby Moore suite. Sharp states that…
“it was an absolute honour to paint him a picture to mark his 80th occasion and I would like to thank; Hilary Carver, the FA and Wembley Stadium for the amazing opportunity and fantastic experience.”
It allowed Sharp to understand how to professionally conduct bussiness in the art practise industry and gave him a tremendous feeling of pride to be able to grant his loved ones the opportunity to share this experience with him.
