Women's Wednesdays is an original art project by Ronnie which features internationally capped women's rugby players (chosen from his followers' suggestions each week).

Women's Wednesdays is about doing something in my power to help raise the profile of women in sports, particularly rugby. Partly influenced by Pop Surrealism, I usually tie something into the narrative that has been inspired by video games.

The artwork was made by using a combination of long exposure (light painting) photography and digital art techniques. This is the fifth piece from the project and features Canada rugby player - No.5 Lock - Maria Samson.

Here I present the Canadian second row (and World Cup runner up) performing a tackle. It's not all about attack, good defense can win games.

The video game I took inspiration from this time is Horizon Zero Dawn and I wanted to create my own version of a Focus (basically a cool earpiece gadget). It started as an idea about Maria's horse riding would you believe? But I imagine rugby players doing a tackle with focus, basically like using the "Eyes to thighs" (and so on) mnemonic.
Each artwork from the series is available to download for free and can be used for personal, non-commercial and educational purposes. For example a device screensaver or poster print (up to A3 size) for your wall.
