We drew Pitzhanger Manor - 25 September 2021

We're still going strong with the live sketchwalks: third one since pandemic restrictions lifted.

Despite some dreary weather earlier in the morning, we had another great turnout of over 40 sketchers throughout the day.

Again, we welcomed quite a few new sketchers as well as our regulars.

Most of us stayed within Pitzhanger Manor and Walpole Park, and captured the impressive Victorian revival architecture and the grounds from many different angles.

A few sketchers also captured the exhibits by the New British Sculpture artist Julian Opie:

And some of us ventured out to draw other places of interest on Ealing Broadway:

Everyone gathered for a final group photo on the grounds with Pitzhanger Manor as the backdrop:

Another successful Urban Sketchers London meeting was rounded off with a drink at the BrewDog pub on Ealing Broadway; and even the sun came out!
