Hi Folks,

This will probably be the last outdoor session for the year, so I thought I'd make it something a little ambitious.

We'll meet outside exit 6 of Westminster Tube at 10:45 and walk over to Parliament Square from there. Please be aware that Parliament square itself has been cordoned off, but there are a number of benches and other places to sit around the square. There is certainly plenty to draw around here.

At around 1-1:30 we will walk down the road to Trafalgar Square, where we will have a chance to pick up some food for lunch before continuing. There is also the option to pop into St Martin in the Fields Crypt, where you can get a pretty substantial meal for a relatively cheap price.

At around 4 we will head to a pub across the street from the National Portrait Gallery called The Chandos to swap sketchbooks.

It's likely to be pretty chilly after a while, so if you have any fingerless gloves I'd advise you to bring them. In the event that the cold gets to much, or that we get rained on, we will retreat to the national gallery. Although there will not be any busts or statues to draw, there should be plenty of people to sketch for those not interested in copying the paintings.

I'll post my mobile on the Friday for anyone who needs to get in touch.
