This is my latest Rush Hour painting. I love the crowd, the people, the experience of seeing different people from different parts of the world all gathered in one place(THE LONDON UNDERGROUND). A visual feast for the figurative painter!
This is my second piece in the Pensive series. I used to work as an Activity Worker with St Mungos and I organized pool tournamments. They were very tense as there was always a prize at stake. Here is one of the matches taking place.

As I go about London, I always get carried away by people who interest me. This particular day I was at Sloane Square Bus Stop, waiting for a bus to take me to Chelsea Worlds End. I saw this girl and all I could say was that her hair looked fantastic on her profile, after observing for a while, I gained the courage to make a quick sketch then I really got hooked. I knew this could not end in the sketch, I'll need to draw.......So I gain more courage to ask if she'll be willing to model, after explaining who I am and what I am passionate about. To my amazement she agrees. BRAVO!!!!!!! We book an appointment and I enjoy a 4 hour study. She tells me she has never modelled but she has drawn from a life model and knows what it would take to be a good model. I think she was fantastic! These are the results! I worked with a variety of sanguine brown and black coloured pencils, sanguine dust and sepia dust.
