Strike partners-perfect combination

This is the new strike force of Arsenal -Robin Van Persie and Emmanual Adebayor- they are the new Thierry Henry and Dennis Bergkamp.

Hope they do well this season!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rush Hour III, oil on canvas, 80 x 100cm

This is another series on my Rush Hour series, this particular one got accepted for the finals of the under 35 category in the Royal Institute of Oil Painters 2007 exhibition to be held at the Mall Galleries.

I really enjoy these Rush Hour paintings because they are the experiences I go through everyday on the tube and I know what is like to be part of that "rat race feel". We all go head long in the train/tube or bus with a serious weird anticipation for work. Hmm mm .

In this painting I wanted to capture the evening feel during the shorter day periods in London when it becomes dark at about 4pm and it is closing time around 5.30pm and everyone plods into the tube subway......

Mostly muted colours have been used, yellows, oranges and red/browns to give the city central glow!
