Virtual Sketchcrawl - Let's draw Little Venice - Saturday 6th June

Sketch by Mike Whalley

Welcome to the 'Let's Draw Little Venice' virtual meet up for June 2020. 

We have created a virtual visit to Little Venice in the form of a Google Tour.
Follow the link below; here you will find links to the places we had intended to visit, so that you can find them online. 

PLEASE NOTE: If the link does not work directly on your device, try copying and pasting it into your browser.

Like the virtual sketch challenge in May, we will 'meet' at 11am on the intended day of the real event, June 6th. We will have a preliminary throw down at 1pm on social media, using the tags #uskathome #usklondon and also posting onto the Urban Sketchers London Facebook page. Please continue to work on your sketches and post after that if you would like to, so that we appreciate each others' work.

How to do it:
Click the link below, or copy and paste it into your browser. Once in, click on each of the titles to the left of the page and you will be taken to the map and street view for that place. Home in, explore and follow the links to find out more about these locations.   Choose one or more for a virtual sketch. We invite you to show sketches inspired by this virtual ramble.

Lets do it online until we meet again.

If you are looking for some additional inspiration, these three short films from the Tate on how to paint like Turner might be interesting to view. Artist Mike Chaplin talks about sketching in line, then tone (using tinted paper) and finally colour. In the images below, Katy Evans shows how she used the technique when 'virtual; sketching in the Little Venice area.
