On Tuesday 19 July we are going to revisit Newington Green, on the borders of Islington and Hackney. Artists can have another go at Maggie Hambling's sculpture to Mary Wollstonecraft, which repaid close study on our last visit, a year ago, and there are interesting old terraces and the old chapel across the road, big trees with light and shade, and people to sketch. Also street scenes. You may find it helpful to look up in advance the images from our previous visit and see what other people chose to sketch, the collection can be found in the July 2021 section of the archives.
As usual, we will assemble on the Green near the cafe at 11 o'clock.
Here is the map:
There is a cafe with outdoor seating in the square, and various others around, also loos in the square, and multiple buses running past: 141, 236, 341, 73.
The nearest train station is Canonbury, and then a walk.
There are benches, but it is always good to have your sketching stool with you.
Looking forward to meeting up, Sue's mobile number for the day is: 07975 864142
We have decided that as a special treat we will have another July outing, details will be published shortly.
