Coastal Painting with Adebanji Alade

Adebanji Alade - with his painting "Summer Crowds, Pavilion Theatre, Cromer" £1,650
While writing Review: Royal Institute of Oil Painters - 123rd Annual Exhibition 2010, I came across a DVD of the work of Adebanji Alade and one of the paintings in the exhibition - of the Edwardian pier and the Pavilion Theatre at Cromer. 

You can see a short extract from a DVD Coastal Adventures in Acrylic With Adebanji Alade on YouTube - and below.
On this DVD he travels to the quintessentially English seaside resort of Cromer on the north coast of Norfolk. The DVD was filmed in the middle  of summer and Cromer was teaming with holidaymaking families making it ideal territory for Adebanji. He paints his first two pictures on Cromer's Edwardian Pier before moving along the promenade a little to capture an amazing view of the pier and promenade from a high vantage point complete with scores of bustling visitors.  He finishes up with a beach scene complete with fishing boats.
It's fascinating to see him paint using acrylics - and he makes some very sound points about what interests people about paintings!

Tomorrow - more about his work on his recent painting marathon in Bath.
