Sketchcrawl: underground at Tate Modern

It wasn't ideal weather for a sketchcrawl yesterday, but it was handy having Tate Modern at hand to warm up in, while the temperatures outside struggled to reach freezing point. The vast new underground, windowless Tanks were showing William Kentridge's I Am Not Me (which closes today). It was dark, I couldn't see what I was drawing, and fellow viewers got confused with the silhouettes of Kentridge's eight-channel video work. A great space though. I like it in there.

London sketchcrawl at Bankside on 19 January

The next London Urban Sketchers sketchcrawl coincides with the 38th Worldwide Sketchcrawl on Saturday 19 January 2013, meeting at midday at Tate Modern's Turbine Hall, and going on until 5pm. Meanwhile, all around the world, people are doing the same in their own cities, sketchbook in hand. What could be better than that?

You just come with your drawing kit, pay no money, draw, and chat with other people who are doing exactly the same. It's a relaxing thing. Inside or out, there's plenty to draw around Bankside.
