Painting Carshalton

 In my last post I wrote about the Wapping Group of Artists exhibition at the Mine Gallery and their day of plein air painting. click here
Later in the afternoon I chose this scene to sketch. and painted it later at home. The traffic over the bridge was incessant  queuing  up to turn either right past the Greyhound or left past the church and I didn't want the cars in this painting.

That is a lovely painting Tessa, you've really captured the atmosphere of the ponds, and wouldn't it be just wonderful if we could have all traffic diverted away from them!
