Accidental pintar

In London again, down to the storage place in Chelsea to pick up the leftovers from the SGFA Bankside exhibition. Strolling along the Chelsea Embankment with with my bag of bubblewrap, I see a painter at their easel. And then another, and another, and another. Turns out my visit coincides with the Pintar Rapido event: artists paint on Saturday, and then the exhibition is on Sunday at Chelsea Old Town Hall.

I'm too late to take part in that, so instead I will paint the painters.


Here's Chelsea Albert Bridge in its pastel blue and yellow and pink, with one of the artists at work.

And further down the Chelsea Embankment, where the houseboats are docked. There are two more painters nearby (but out of range of my pencil).

Each: Ink and watercolour, 42 x 13. Click to enlarge.
