Chelsea streets and small walks on Saturday 17th November with Urban Sketchers London

My own findings in Chelsea Saturday

Our very interesting outing to The National Army Museum resulted in many wonderful sketches of the museum's exhibits and Royal Chelsea Hospital area around...I have opted to walk and explore, doing this sketch just standing on the street. After finishing it in pencil and some ink lines I walked a bit further towards the river and discovered very interesting building...
The London Sketch Club- founded in 1883! 
They used to call themselves "black and white artists", drawing from life in the studio and on location and exhibiting at their club.
I feel very curious and inspired, hope to visit their open exhibition one day.
My own sketch I had to improve later with some watercolour, adding details and full street address. The London sketch club is also in the picture, just a fragment of the building.
