Croissant and cupcake at Gail's, Fulham Road Chelsea

I went to see Rosie Sanders's new exhibition "Against the Light" of her very large watercolour paintings of flowers art at the Jonathan Cooper Park Walk Gallery today (see Review: Rosie Sanders "Against the Light" to see what I saw).

Afterwards I debated a cup of tea versus standing in the rain for the bus - and the tea won.

However walking into the Gail's Artisan Bakery at 341 Fulham Road, Chelsea which I'd spotted on my way to the Gallery meant I had to view the goods on display.

From there it was a mere short delay before I'd ordered my very late lunch (aka afternoon tea) of a plain croissant and a raspberry cupcake and a Pot of Earl Grey.

So with my still life ready and waiting I got stuck into sketching.  My incentive was that I couldn't eat the raspberry cupcake until I'd virtually finished the sketch!

  1. I like the pairing of exhibition and interesting watering hole.
