^ Sabathia Painting Process & Step-by-step
CC Sabathia of the New York Yankees:
The image shows Sabathia joyfully catching a ball tossed back to him by an infielder with his pitching hand, as he does on occasion. His larger than life figure is surrounded by New York buildings. This is an exaggeration of both his physical size as well as his joyful personality. Along the tops of the buildings, water tanks can be seen occupying the positions of his teammates on the playing field. The NY pinstripes help identify the tanks as players. Grass patterns and the rich color of the baseball dirt are bounced around the rooftop, continuing the comparison of city/field.
