John suggested I email you about some events that aren't exactly Drawing on Location, but may be of interest to artists, and you can certainly bring along your sketchbooks!
I have put full details on http://www.meetup.com/ArtsLinkmeetup-com/
These are all held in the Mall Galleries, which is a wonderful gallery, just off Trafalgar Square (under Admiralty Arch, on the right hand side of the Mall) It is great because exhibitions change every couple of weeks, and you can have coffee right in the middle of the gallery so admire the work at the same time! www.mallgalleries.org.uk
