Morning Rush, Earls Court Station, 6" x 8", Oil on gessoed card, 2010

This is another piece that got into the Chelsea Art Society Open Exhibition, which comes to an end today. My other piece "Evening Light, Charing Cross Road" won the Award for the Best painting of a London Scene, my next post would be on this.

Earls Court in the morning is busy and I'm really loving these crowded scenes. I worked on this one for almost 3 hours, it is small but it was a very complicated piece.

Wow-wee! What a challenge! And so well executed - you can really see your sketching skills coming through in this. No doubt vital for such a scene. Great job Adebanji!

Wow, I marvel at how you transformed a rather ordinary and almost bleak snapshot into a beautiful, vibrant picture. You're a kind of wizard surely... I love how you really changed reality and gave us your own vision.
