Sheffield Wednesday's Dream Scene Goalkeeper is the great Ron Springett.
The best Photo I found of Ron was this one of him in his street clothes. The angle was right because I wanted him seated, looking sideways in conversation with someone in particular.
I didn’t have a photo of his body in the right position so poor Ron has to make do with my middle age spread as the reference! As I am having to reconstruct a moment that doesn't exist, the image goes through many stages from initial research to the finished painting.
During my digging I found that one of his quirks was to have a notebook on opposition strikers and their spot kicking methods. He is letting a famous teammate know he has him in the book too!! I wonder who it could be?
