Adebanji, every time I visit your blog your work gets better and better! Beautiful watercolors--do you work from reference material or on site? They are colorful, yet subdued, loose, yet have sound drawing, all wrapped up in a 'London' atmosphere.

BTW, I just voted for you! I hope NYC lives up to your expectations. I look forward to seeing what happens next.

Thanks Sheila! Most of the time for all these watercolours I use colour references but I devise a plan of working to time, as if on site! Now, this helps the work to remain fresh and spontaneous!

Thanks for the vote! It's been so great to see how much encouragement has come through this voting! I think blogsphere and the internet has changed the world and only God knows whats next! I am currently 4th with 3days to go, anything can happen, but When you have dreams even if they don't come true when you want them to, they help you to live the dream on a daily basis. Thanks once again for you support!

You know I'll be painting there one day! I'll remind you I said this, when it happens!
