Three of us showed up on Saturday. Gotta do a better job about getting the word out. I KNOW that a city this size has to have more sketchers in it.

We started at Victora, then walked to Sloane Square and finally to the Victoria and Albert. The colour studies are from a trip I made the next day to St Albans.

Great stuff!!!
I love both styles, cartoon and more realistic one!!! The color tones are fantastic!!!
Looking forward to see the other's results too, I always enjoy seeing London places I've been.

good stuff! yes i'm surprised more urban sketching londoners didn't make it out. Well i'm a londoner but i'm too far away. I love the street scene, and those colour thumbnails of st.albans, i recognize it there!

Lovely work Tom, I really like your style :thumbup:

I've wanted to join in the past two sketchcrawls but, sod's law being what it is, I've ended up working both times :(

I only started sketching earlier this year (last previous attempts being some ten years ago when I was at sixth form!) so my efforts tend to vary wildly and I'm desparately trying to improve, but if anyone wants to take a peek you're more than welcome to:

Lovely as always Tom, the first one especially with the man drawing(?) and the little touch of the bird too! I can fully sympathise with that having been a victim at the sketchcrawl back in October! Also love how you switch to the more realistic style for the statues, but retain excellent gesture.

I'd planned to attend this one too, but I had so much to do in the morning and a gig at Wembley Stadium in the evening. Managed to get some sketching done in the morning though:

very very quick iphone sketch of man kneeling by a shelf in M&S:

Hopefully it won't be too long till the next one and we can take advantage of the summer months, as long as it's a weekend I've always got a chance of attending. Hope to see you there too Emma, nice watercolours!

@66ahri - no, I do like Colors on the DS a lot (especially the pressure sensitivity!), but on the iPhone, Brushes seems a little slicker and more responsive. Today a new application was released called 'Layers' which lets you have up to 5 layers like in Photoshop, but I think for quick drawing, Brushes is still the best.

Thank you :oops:

After seeing the sketches you did on your iPhone I've downloaded Colours for my DS and will have a play - always exciting trying something new!
