Despite the very unpromising weather early in the day, the skies cleared on Saturday for the August sketchcrawl in Greenwich, with a great turnout, a mix of familiar faces along with some international visitors from Australia, Barcelona and New Zealand.  
Below are just few snaps of sketchbook drawings from the day.  Apologies for the names that aren't credited, if you recognise your drawing, please let us know in the comment box and we'll remedy it as soon as possible.



The Cutty Sark proved a popular subject throughout the day.


Great views across the Thames, from the shore or up high near the Observatory.

Good old fashioned fun

Down by the Cutty Sark, this looked fantastic against the cloudy sky and the tower blocks on the other side of the river. Not that I managed to get the watercolours out to record it's lovely paint work of course. No, I was too busy getting the all metal supports in.
