It was a summer day and I was really in the grove, I hadn't done plein air for a while and this time I got into that swing!
|The whole set-up just before painting starts|
I set out to Westfield Park, very near to my studio and I went for the trees, you can never get it wrong with the trees, especially when there's shade, sun and a bit of architecture in the background!
|The picture of the scene as the camera sees it from where I was positioned|
I set up and sang while I painted! I love painting but this time I just put on my sketching hat and sketched with colour!
|Adebanji painting the scene at Westfield Park|
The method I used here is called , "OUTSIDE-IN"- where I start with broad strokes of the whole picture and then finish off with details inside the piece.

|The materials, everything after the session|
"I want you to see things from the realization that your drawing does not need to be a house. the view that you must take is a piece of God's outdoors, that this is shadow and this is light. You ought to be able to tremble before it, and not sit down like a magician and try to make windows." -Hawthorne on Painting
