On 25th July some 15 artists met to sketch around the surroundings to St Paul's Cathedral. Thankfully the tube strike had been called off. It was also a fine sunny day in contrast to much of the recent weather.
St Paul's is Christopher Wren's masterpiece and a challenge for artists. There is plenty of scope for artists to draw both St Paul's and the surrounding area, including the Temple Bar arch at the entrance to Paternoster Square and the churchyard and Distaff Gardens.
Some people have yet to send in their pics, don't be shy. We can publish late arrivals next time
And some pics below
We had an alfresco lunch on the stepped plinth of a statue in Paternoster Square. Below is a snap of the jolly group.
The next outings are Tuesday 15 August, the Victorian Turkish Bathhouse just off Bishopsgate.
and Wednesday 31 August in Asteys Row, just off Essex Road Islington. We try to do two outings in August including a Wednesday outing, for those who have other commitments on Tuesdays, and also because the nearby library in Essex Road is open on a Wednesday and has loos.
Put these dates in your diary, more details to follow.
