We drew Dulwich Village - May 2019

(Rachel Bone writes) Urban Sketchers London left the city behind on 11 May, to venture to Dulwich Village, a beautiful and historic area in leafy South London. Stately Dulwich Picture Gallery, designed by Sir John Soane, provided the meeting point for our group in the morning, and welcome shelter from the rain for the 1 pm meet up.

Sketchers made the most of the periods of bright sunshine to sketch a variety of subjects in the area, huddling under umbrellas and taking advantage of the Picture Gallery's large windows to finish sketches when the sudden showers hit. Many sketched the exterior of the Picture Gallery itself and its surrounding church and almshouses. Others took to the village to recreate the picturesque rows of shops, restaurants, and the Crown and Greyhound pub, which served as our final meeting point. 

It was great to see so many people, including several new faces, find a whole new part of London to explore and sketch, and to enjoy a place so close to the hustle and bustle but with such a different feel.
