We drew Highgate Cemetery 9 September 2017


The day started at Lauderdale House, where the excellent café did a roaring trade with the arrival of our band of Urban Sketchers. We all walked downhill through the lovely wooded Waterlow Park until we arrived at Highgate Cemetery East, where more sketchers were waiting for us -- in all, an excellent turnout of about 70 people.


This was my second visit to the cemetery.  I found it to be far more enjoyable than my first visit, when I was rather overwhelmed with the number of tombstones. 


Sangeeta Bhagawati
There were many subjects to chose from -- it was interesting how the sketchers spread themselves right round the cemetery.


Midday throw-down in the cemetery

After our first throw-down, some of us climbed the rather steep Swains Lane to Highgate village.

I can recommend lunch in The Angel, with Cathryn Worrell & Mike Whalley. Pond Square in the centre of Highgate (the pond is long gone!) was a good venue for sketching -- several of us positioned ourselves there.

Paul Gadenne
We returned to the Lauderdale House café for the final meet. Fortunately, the large veranda protected us from heavy passing showers.


Many thanks to all the sketchers who attended -- and thank you for sharing your wonderful sketches online.
