I was determined to paint on an evening when the light was brilliant around the River Thames and the Chelsea Embankment. I thought I was going to go a bit further in search of a scene to paint when I suddenly got struck by the light hitting the Whistler Statue along the Chelsea Embankment.
I just parked my Pochade Box and decided to give it a real go!
I enjoyed every bit of the process and decided to share the way I go about doing these small paintings in this blogpost.

|FINAL STAGE- I bring everything together by adding a few details here and there and work on a few lamp poles is the background, I didn't want to add the traffic lights as I thought it would ruin the airy space around the statue|
