Along the Kingston-upon-Thames waterfront

Occasionally I sketch on a saturday morning with a local group on SW London who this week chose the Kingston-upon-Thames waterfront.  Kingston has gone through some remarkable changes in the last decade or two.  One being the walk upstream of the bridge now almost entirely cafe society, with its alley links through to the Market Place.  Leaving aside any social considerations of which the range will be wide it is a successful built regeneration.  Too cold for the traditional view along to the bridge and boats I sat with a coffee or two and painted through the window enjoying (if not achieving accuratly) the framing and perspective.
