Painting People and Places

Capturing Everyday Life in Oils

«

What, you might wonder, links these two apparently different subjects? The answer is that they both have character, and capturing that is what this book is about. We've met Adebanji Alade before as an often quite fast-working sketcher. It turns out that he's an oil painter of considerable skill as well. That he can also present his work with clarity makes this an absolute delight. 

Sensibly, the book is divided into two distinct halves and there is no sleight of hand trying to connect studio portraits with outdoor work in all weathers. Both contain a wealth of practical advice about ways of working, use of colour and how to interact with people. Although there are urban landscapes here, it's the people on the streets that make the strongest connection between the two sections. 

This is an enjoyable journey with a thoroughly likeable companion, enhanced by the superb quality of production.
