I have pastelled in Chelsea too, in streets around the Royal Hospital. The early morning and evening colours have been a delight to explore.
On Saturday I participated in Pintar Rapido, a painting festival around Kensington and Chelsea. Work painted on Saturday, between 9am and 8pm was framed and exhibited on Sunday in Chelsea Town Hall.
It was a magnificent sight to see - masses of painters along the Embankment and Sloane Square. It was also a great opportunity to discuss and share plein air ideas. I got terrible easel envy.
I relished the challenge and produced 3 pastels. I put the second one in. The atmosphere was amazing and I'll certainly participate in more.
