Stockwood Park and Still Life Demo By Adebanji Alade


Last month I recieved a gift of markers and a sketchbook with some wonderful drawings by Adebanji Alade.He is very talented and his star is rising all the time,so I thought it would be great to be taught by him.I got in touch and I had a one to one lesson with him yesterday.I had high hopes and let me tell you I was not disappointed.I was absolutely blown away by him as a person and a teacher!! He has such a passion for art and knows how to put this across.I think I learnt more in a single afternoon than if I had spent an entire year on my own.
My only regret is , because I was so busy concentrating on the lesson  I did'nt take a better photo of him.He is arranging group lessons sometime soon so I am hoping that I will get a better one.

  2. That's a beautiful painting and photo of the trees against the winter sky. I was admiring the photo for a few minutes, then was delighted to see it as a painting when I scrolled down! I can imagine what a monumentous day that was for you to be in the presence of one of your mentors and to feel yourself growing as an artist and a person... Those times are rare but so enriching! I will look forward to the next new paintings!
