We drew Tate Britain - 24 February 2018

Lovely capture of the group at the end of the day from Cynthia

So lovely to see such a good turnout for the February sketchcrawl, based in and around Tate Britain. We had people travelling from Hampshire and Birmingham in the UK to join us and even two European visitors from USk Netherlands and USk Rome!  

Lots of great sketchbook drawings from both inside and out, some of which feature below. Lots more on the Facebook page -

Next meet up is at Leadenhalll Market on Saturday 10th March -

Science Museum LATES

[By John Webb] New Year, new pens, new experience. Went with Sketchmob to the Science Museum LATES. What an experience. The Museum closes then reopens at 6:45. When I arrived at 6:30there was a huge long queue down Exhibition Road. But the arrangements were so efficient we were all in by 7:00 and set off to sketch but first visiting one of the many 'restaurants' around the galleries along with bars, live music and interactive staffed demonstrations. I gather the other museums do similar things scheduling their LATES so as not to clash.

Great places to sketch in the warm, dry and with masses of people.
I went for a view downwards into the Broadcast Gallery trying out my new Tombow Brush pens - brush one end pen the other. A whole new technique and one which will take some mastering. I've seen so many other London Urban Sketchers use them. One has to keep up...
