Grey Day, Albert Bridge

This is one of my entries into the Cheyne Walk Trust Chelsea Riverside competition, I'll be posting on my other entry tomorrow. We were to paint any scene around the Chelsea Riverside. The exhibition of all the submitted paintings ends today at the Heatherley School of Fine Art with an auction of paintings by some well known artists like Julian Barrow; Jane Corsellis; Dennis Gilbert; Ken Howard; Hugh Krall; Bill Packer; Melissa Scott-Miller; Hazel Soan; and Roy Connelly and others. The funds raised from this exhibition would be used to support the student Bursary at Heatherley's School of Fine Art.


The Saturday I went to paint this wasn't the best of days, it was grey, with the rains pouring cats and dogs....But I had to do this painting as I couldn't do the Sunday which was a brighter day.

Below are some pictures of how the day went.
