We drew Richmond - June 2019

(Helen Hayhoe writes) On Saturday 15 June 2019, we visited Richmond, by the river in south-west London. We were worried about the rising of the river and the falling of the rain, but a pleasing crowd turned out and stayed to produce some wonderful work. We welcomed sketchers from around the world.

We met each time at the Paved Court to catch up with the throw downs. Represented among the sketches are the riverside, Richmond Green, Richmond Theatre, the famous view of the Thames painted by JMW Turner, and the Royal Wardrobe. Sketches below are, in order, by Mike Whalley, Martin Stone, and Zane Karklina.

A summer evening on the South Bank - 19 June 2019

London's South Bank has a new roof garden above the Queen Elizabeth Hall, and that is where we met for an evening of sketching on 19 June 2019.  Despite uncertain weather, we had a good evening with great views over London.
We started to assemble the group for a photograph, but only some of the group had arrived (photo below) before the clouds opened.  So we all headed inside the Royal Festival Hall to look at each others drawings.  Well done, all.

The evening was run by Jo Dungey and Zane Karklina and the photographs are by Zane Karklina.
