Here are the London results from last Saturday.

Thanks to Chris and Alfonso who showed up. We followed a route from St. James's Park through Trafalgar Square, across the river to Festival Hall, then to the Tower via the tube, across Tower Bridge, past City Hall and Borough Market to the Tate Modern. It was a long day. I put together a map ( which we ended up following pretty closely.

Here's a little gouache study in St James's park which I did while waiting to begin:

Rainy day tourists at the Tower of London:

Trafalgar Square and "Nando's" restaurant:

Tate Modern and Southwark Cathedral:

Lovely gouache of the park, and I love your people sketches. You captured all the action of the tourists, the skateboard riders, etc. It looks like you had a very productive day.

Tom - You've got a wonderful collection of sketches! I love the study of the park and all the tourists in action. Your sketch of the inside of the cathedral is lovely...great shading and perspective on that. Nice day's work!!

Hi Tom. Nice work on the cathedral, and I like your blog. Is that man fencing with his umbrella or merely pointing?

Lovely stuff Tom.

I love the skaters especially.

Does anyone know when the next sketchcrawl is on?

Sadly, I was too busy with a film project last time.

Is there anyone out there fancy a sketchcrawl in Suffolk?

Hi killmax

Not really mate, but I've been experimenting with Final Cut Pro but I'm surly open to offers! I am seriously interested in getting my work involved in an high profile project.

How about you?
