THE CHELSEA MARATHON (Introduction)

The Chelsea Marathon is here!! 

Morning Light, Albert Bridge from Battersea Bridge, 8" x 6", Oil on Gessoed Card SOLD


Now, you all must have heard of my Bath Marathon and my mini-York Marathon! I had to travel far to get those done. But from tomorrow, the 8th of April till the 8th of May. I'll be running a Chelsea Marathon!

Rainy Day, Kings Road, 10" x 8", Oil on board, SOLD


This is no real race! But it's more of a painting endurance race! I'll be looking to produce 60 paintings and drawings during this period. The works will be done indoors and outdoors. All the works will be focusing on my favourite spots  in Chelsea. My studio is in Chelsea and I am so used to the place, but sometimes you can be used to place and never really explore and do justice to painting it.

Whistler Statue, Evening Light, 6" x 8", Oil on board Available


They will all be sized 8" x 10" (inches). Either oil on board, or watercolour/gouache/ drawings on paper


Morning Light, Sloane Square, 10" x 8", Oil on board SOLD

I am exploring my local area, the historical places, the trendy places, the River Thames, the Bridges, the gardens, the roads, especially Kings Road, the shops and stores and the people everything I can get in!

Rain, Rain, London Streets, Sloane Square, 8" x 10", Oil on board Available


It's also an opportunity  for anyone out there to buy the works they love. I'll be posting at least one work here, during this period and I'll also be having them up for sale. if interested in any painting or drawing, just drop an email to me.  They'll also be available on daily paintworks.
The works will be published on this blog everyday from the 1st of May. Stay tuned!

Morning Light Chelsea Riverside, 10" x 8", Oil on board Available

I'm looking forward to this and stay tuned as you'll be enjoying some of my favourite spots in and around the Chelsea area!
