urban sketching my favourite part of london

A couple of weeks ago, along with the recently launched Urban Sketchers London and the regular Meetup group 'Drawing London on Location', I organized a sketchcrawl around the Temple and Fleet Street areas of London. I am a guest correspondent on USk London, and was back visiting for a couple of weeks, so I thought this would be a great way to meet other London sketchers and bring them together. I wasn't wrong! On May 26 more than fifty of us got our sketchbooks out and drew my favourite part…

Tower Bridge Is Not Falling Down

My favorite movie is, A Man For All Seasons. It's a film about Sir Thomas Moore and Henry the Eighth. When I was recently in England, Yun kept telling me I would love to see Tower of London. It's the joint where Henry tortured and whacked all of his rivals, including Tommy Moore. Every time we are in London she asks me if I want to go there to see it. I always say no. I can be difficult like that sometimes. Finally she dragged me there. Tourists stretched as far as the eye could see. People…

Harold Pinter's house, Clapton, London

London has a tradition, dating from 1886, of blue plaques placed on buildings to mark where famous and illustrious people once lived and worked. I guess lots of other cities have similar schemes. Many otherwise uneventful walks and cycle rides across the city can be brought to life by suddenly finding out that Jimi Hendrix or Karl Marx once lived in a house you are passing. Harold Pinter, the Blair-hating cricket-loving winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2005, grew up in…

Victoria & Albert Gallery London

Visit to the Victoria & Albert Gallery to see some british fashion exhibits. Rare moment in London with the sun shining down and lots of vsitors are having tea at the center garden area. Although the ground is pretty wet from days of raining, nobody seem to mind so I decide to join in and did some sketching with a nice warm coffee beside me.

Tate Modern: London's snowy sketchcrawl

We had a good turnout for Saturday’s sketchcrawl, and by joining forces with the Drawing London on Location group it was our highest yet – despite the freezing conditions meaning that many of our regulars were unable to make it through the snow. We all met in the Turbine Hall (above) at Tate Modern, a shelter from the icy blast outside, so there was plenty to draw, including the view from the cafe at the top that looks over the Thames to St Paul’s on the north side. Catch up with more at the…

Covent Garden sketchcrawl, London

On Sunday, London's Urban Sketchers met for a sketchcrawl around Covent Garden, meeting at Timberyard, a new cafe on Upper St Martin's Lane (above) that is hosting a show of work by five of our artists' for a few months: Adebanji Alade, Nathan Brenville, Olha Prymmak, Evelyn Rowland and Lis Watkins. Pay it a visit, if you can. We filled the place with sketchers — our thanks to Darren, who invited us to show there — before heading out to draw Neal's Yard (below), a courtyard of health food…
