It's all about the Chelsea I love, the way I see Chelsea!
|The World's End from Cremone Gardens (16) Chelsea Marathon, 10" x 8", Graphite on Museum mountboard|
I sat in the studio and I was trying to get some admin stuff done, then I felt this strong inclination to draw!
I just felt like grinding graphite on to Museum mountboard, it was a strong feeling, never felt that way in a long time.

So I made use of the strong feeling and just before that feeling decided to fly and fade away, I quickly grab my graphite sketching kit and go to the nearest place I can draw.
As I walk from my studio along Lots Road, I stop at Cremone Gardens, take a walk through and once I get to the end near the river bank, I look up and see these lovely buildings crowded by some really nice trees, I make up my mind, that this is going to be my sketching spot!
I do the first part, then I become hungry......
|The first stage of development|
Then I come back to it later on to finish it up!
|Second Stage of development|
I started by sketching lightly with the graphite pencils then I used the graphite dust for broad shape washes after which I finished up with strong strokes and darker lines.
