The new 'Urban Sketchers London' blog

I've been a member of Urban Sketchers from the very beginning - having joined in October 2008.  I'm very pleased to say that I'm now also a founder member of the new Urban Sketchers London blog - which you can find at

The other founder members of Urban Sketchers London who are participating in this new blog are:
Once, we've got settled into the new blog (and I've sketched a cup of tea on location somewhere in London!), more London sketchers will be joining us.

We'll be telling people interested in joining the London Urban Sketchers how they can do this in due course - in a post on the new blog!

It's worth noting that all the sketches you will see on this new blog will always be drawn in freehand, on location in front of the subject.  They will always be real places - and we'll always tell you the location of the scene which has been sketched.

Any new members will need to sign up to sticking to the Urban Sketchers Manifesto - see below.
Urban Sketchers Manifesto
  • We draw on location, indoors or out, capturing what we see from direct observation. 
  • Our drawings tell the story of our surroundings, the places we live and where we travel.
  • Our drawings are a record of time and place. 
  • We are truthful to the scenes we witness. 
  • We use any kind of media and cherish our individual styles. 
  • We support each other and draw together. We share our drawings online. 
  • We show the world, one drawing at a time.
Why not subscribe now to make sure you don't miss a post.  The subscription links are in the right hand column of the blog - just below the Urban Sketchers Manifesto.


  1. Okay, Katherine, I'm on my way to visit the new blog and subscribe. Way to go!!

  3. Good for you, Katherine, didn't realize you were a founder! Lovely! I started Urban Sketchers Midwest not long ago, really enjoying the experience...


I always check identities and ALL links in comments for spam.

Due to excessive attempts to introduce spam via comments on this blog, I've introduced a regime where all comments with links in the ID or text to the websites of hotels/resorts/tourist destinations will NOT be approved and are deleted. The websites of repeat spammers are also reported to Google.

Nice, sensible people who are not new to blogging probably don't need to read my Comments Policy
