Under the mistletoe at Covent Garden

Urban Sketchers London Do Covent Garden - December 2016

Giant mistletoe and Christmas baubles, carol singers, buskers and conjurors, historic buildings and crowds of shoppers – Urban Sketchers tackled them all at Covent Garden.  

Our monthly sketchcrawl was on Saturday 10 December, and plenty of people took up the challenge to capture the pre-Christmas scenes. At least two sketchers sold their drawings to impressed passers-by!  Here are just a few examples of the great range of sketches.

This USk London sketchcrawl was brought to you by Jo Dungey
