On the river at Greenwich

I went with my sketching group, The Bankside Group to visit Greenwich and  all round the Royal Hospital and along the river to the Trafalgar Tavern. This hostelry is well worth a visit with lots of history and a great view of the Thames from their bay window.

Highlight for me was painting on the river bed ( fortunately it was low tide), it gives a completely different perspective for drawing and in the distance you can just see the newly renovated Cutty Sark.

Greenwich really is a great place for a sketcher to visit lots to do, great pubs, a lively market place, the Royal Observatory and of course the River Thames.  The Bankside Group meets monthly and try to go to some interesting places all around London.
