I don't need an umbrella...I love the rain




This is my contribution to Vern's sketchbook. He said we could paint anything and around the time I was thinking of what to paint- It happened to be a time I was getting mesmerized by rain reflections on London streets.

So I decided to do this piece of an old man I saw around Holborn in London enjoying the rain without an umbrella. Hope you like it Vern-It got me back to using watercolour and gouache.

Are these the last books coming to me or do I still have more to do?

  1. What a beautiful piece Adebanji. Those reflections are superb !
    If this one is for Vern than you might have just one more which would be Dean I think ?!

    Yes, mine was the last one! I still have Vern's to go.

  5. This is wonderful, Banji! I love rain, too, and here in N. Texas with our triple digit temps, we're dying for some. Love the variety of bright colors and the muted reflections; very, very nice!!

  6. This is beautiful, Adebanji. I love the colors and the collection of abstract shapes in this. Brilliant. You are a master of the figure and urban settings in any media. This is your last, because I am working on your book now. It will be back to you next.

  7. Adebanji, thanks so much for the beautiful piece. I really enjoy your figurative and cityscape work, so this is awesome. Seeing all your work in person was a treat, and I will miss that. Sorry this comment took so long, but I was away.
