Before the Interview, 8" x 11" oil on gessoed cardboard, 2009



With the same methods employed in the last transformation I have painted this piece from one of my best sketches on public transport.

I remember it was an early morning ride from Abbey Wood to London Bridge and there were many delays on the train which helped for more time to sketch this lady.

I have used a limited palette of 3 colours (Cadmium yellow deep, Alizarin Crimson and Winsor blue(red shade) with white) for this piece.

i continue to be amazed by your work. this piece has particular resonance. one of the greatest sources of inspiration, character development, simply people watching is public transportation...marta in atlanta, ga to be exact. there are so many layers to this piece. thank you...and thank you so much for the follow by the way
