Sketching a lighthouse and lightships in London (Urban Sketchers London Sketchcrawl 16th November)

Tomorrow lunchtime I'm going to go to a place not far from me to see a lighthouse I never knew existed. It is in fact the only lighthouse in London - and it's at Trinity Buoy Wharf in East London, which is situated at the confluence of the River Lee and the River Thames.

Plus there's

  • a couple of lighthouses , 
  • a pier with a good view of the O2, a container city and 
  • an American Diner - a painting of which won the Sunday Times Watercolour competition this year.
