Visit Greenwich

From Island Garden DLR station we will walk to the entrance to the foot tunnel under the Thames to Greenwich.  We will spend some time in the gardens as there are lovely views of Greenwich across the river.  Then we will walk through the tunnel to Greenwich itself.  There is a covered market where we can buy lunch, and, if the weather is fine, head up the hill for a picnic.  if the weather is bad there is the National Maritime Museum to visit.  The Cutty Sark also provides a great drawing opportunity.  We will meet up at the Trafalgar Tavern at 4.00 pm to review our work over a pint.  My mobile no is 07710976046.  Hope to see you on 20th.

    Had a great day. Met some great people including Jane and Julie. Managed to complete some passable sketches and it was good sharing our sketches with each other at The Trafalgar Pub at the end.

      Hi Julie. It was a good day, wasn't it. You should have sketched the sponge so everyone could have enjoyed it.

    Greenwich is a lovely venue- with much to see & do. Had a great view from the top of the hill of the sky line of Canary Wharf. Enjoyed the sunshine & having a chat & meeting new people in the pub.

    hi, not sure if I'm not a square peg in the proverbial round hole here, as I've not done any sketching for ages, however, I'll give meetup a try, Greenwich is a fantastic place, and I'm looking forward to this experience !

      Drawing for me is a way to clear the head and forget about day to day going on's.
      so much so now have the flu after drawing last Friday and Sat.

      I wonder if you have got the mystery virus that has been hitting everyone all over the country? Starts with a cough then progresses to general wretchedness then happily goes away to find someone else

    Looking forward to drawing a new part of London. Have not walked under the river before and sorry Tom but what is the light like in the tunnel to draw?

    April 6, 2013

  • claire_w

    My first time too! Really looking forward to meeting everyone :-)

    Whatever you feel comfortable carrying!

    Gordon - I plan to spend an hour drawing in island gardens and then cross under the river at 12.00 to go to the covered market to draw and get some lunch. But this would depend on the weather. If it is raining then I will go to the maritime museum. But each person can make their own decision depending on what they like to draw. As long as we meet up in the pub at 4 pm of course! My mobile no is 07710976046. So ring or text me if you miss us at island gardens.
