Evening Light, from Battersea Bridge wins Chelsea Riverside Competition
Evening Light, From Battersea Bridge, 24" x 30", Oil on Board, 2010 SOLD
The Chelsea Riverside Exhibition came to a close yesterday and I am delighted to have won the First Prize for the Best work in the Show! It was exciting so many wonderful paintings of the Chelsea Riverside area!
The exhibition was well organized by Cheyne Walk Trust and Heatherley's School of Fine Art. It was great to meet so many artists, collectors and guests! The auction was another great phase of the show, it was amazing to see so many works of art being sold in hundreds and thousands, people were just outbidding each other it, was a great buzz to witness this!
Halfway through the painting, getting the mood. Sometimes paintings have more wonder and mood before they are completed.
I have more pictures to speak about the night than what I have to say, so enjoy the pictures below.
