Next Sketch Day will be Tuesday 11 December at the Imperial War Museum, Lambeth

Our next sketch day will be to the Imperial War Museum, Lambeth Rd, London SE1 6HZ.    This is appropriate as we have just passed the centenary of the ending of the Great War, but in fact the most spectacular display in the main hall features  second world war aircraft, which can be sketched from below and above.   There are various exhibitions  and displays dealing with the Great War (and a very fine collection of wartime paintings, if anyone feels like not sketching themselves).  Lots of machinery, and people to sketch.   The building is pretty spectacular if you can deal with the cold.   More details:

A previous visit with the London Urban Sketchers a year ago resulted in the following pictures which give an idea of some possibilities both internal and external:

There are no restrictions as to art materials, but bring a stool so that you can sit down at the view you want.

Meet at 11am in the main hall (go in the main door, and down some steps to the aircraft in the middle).   Café, loos, all available, and should be relatively empty as it will be a weekday in term time. 
The nearest tube station is Lambeth North, on the Bakerloo line.   Full directions can be found here

Sue's telephone number for the day is 07975 864142, we look forward to seeing everyone.
