London by Urban Sketchers


Ten years ago I sketched a tea dance at the Royal Opera House, drawing dancers on the floor and the Royal Opera House band in smart white jackets and black bow ties. One of my sketches from that day can be found on page 96 of London by Urban Sketchers, a book of drawings by more than 100 urban sketchers published in 2022 to mark the 10 year anniversary of Urban Sketchers London. We have sketched London's monuments and backstreets, suburbs and Tube stations, its museums, cafes and constructions sites and pubs, parks and protests -- all in pen and ink, watercolour, mixed media or digitally drawn, showing London one drawing at a time. I edit the blog for Urban Sketchers London and for this reason could be accused of bias -- but the book, 'tis a thing of beauty. 

The book is sponsored by Da Vinci, Derwent and Hahnemühle.
