Football and Shopping – winter scenes in Battersea and Chelsea

The Beautiful Game in Battersea Park

I took a break from west country beach images this month and devoted my time instead to a brace of London works. With the football season in full swing The Beautiful Game In Battersea Park is a painted and embroidered snapshot of footie on the banks of the Thames. With Battersea Power Station in the background, and Asta Puppy looking at something in particular, parents watch on as the young blues look to be getting the better of the young reds.

Flower Stall on Sloane Square

Not so far away is Peter Jones, on the Kings Road, where I worked in the haberdashery department for three months after leaving Goldsmith College. I’ve always loved the flower stall on Sloane Square and enjoyed quite a few lunch breaks on that bench. I’ve tried to capture west London style; there are Chelsea ladies buying flowers, another talking on a mobile, and fashionable west Londoners going about their business.

‘The Beautiful Game in Battersea Park’ and ‘Flower Stall On Sloane Square’ are framed and ready to go; £620 each.
