Let's Draw Chelsea and Battersea - 10th October 2015

Albert Bridge from Cheney Walk by Swasky
It is going to be difficult to know what to choose this month!
We will be on two sides of the river and two very different areas, Chelsea and Battersea roughly between the two bridges Albert Bridge and Battersea Bridge.
Start Meeting 11:30 Albert Bridge by the river (western end) on the Chelsea side. See map link here for exact location.
To get there use the TFLwebsite, here, as there are various buses that get you there but the fastest route will depend on your point of origin.
In the morning, we suggest:
  • Exploring the embankment - there amazing buildings and history along Cheyne Walk  and the Chelsea embankment.
  • Sketching Views of bridges and the southern modern Riverside.
Lunch time 1:30 pm at the Battersea Park Buddhist pagoda - Great spot for a group photo.
For lunch - Bring a picnic, grab a tea on the park kiosk or have a bite at The Prince Albert on the Battersea end of the Albert Bridge.
In the afternoon we suggest:
Drawing from Battersea Park and around the Riverside and around the Royal College of Arts 
The end - meet on the Battersea side - at the Doodle Bar- 4pm

note: If the weather is bad we can retreat to the Doodle Bar early and draw there, or visit the Royal College of Arts at Battesea Ground floor Galleries.

Thanks to Swasky for letting us use his image this month!
