Gramp’s Clubs

24″ x 18″ on 140 lb. watercolor paper
Private Collection

My grandfather was an avid golfer right up to the end of his life. When he died, I was given his clubs primarily because I was left-handed just like he was. The set was made up of Ben Hogan autographed clubs. The woods are actually made of wood.

Gramp was a short, fair-haired Irishman with a dry sense of humor. He would have appreciated that I did a painting of his clubs and then sold it to another golfer.

The most time  with this painting was spent painting the grass. I started with a light yellow-green and then progressed to darker and darker greens and finally a dark almost black green for the shadows.
