The Drawing London Group are artist friends keen to explore the vibrant life and colour of London. We meet every month to sketch and paint in familiar and lesser-known areas of London such as Leadenhall Market, Covent Garden , Southbank and Greenwich.
In our upcoming exhibition, inspired by the title of our show (a quote from Ben Jonson’s ‘Bartholomew Fair’) we will be showing London Life depicted in a wide variety of media including watercolour, oil, iPad and pencil drawing.

Steve has an abstract painting in a very brief, but interesting art show at Tate Modern during the second weekend in April.
The submission was open to all staff and volunteers working for Tate on all four sites and so the idea is to showcase the artistic talents hidden within the organisation. I’m sure it’s going to be a very varied and fascinating show.
This page is for images of drawings and paintings made by the members of our group at each of our meeting places during the year 2018. Roll your mouse over the thumbnail images to find out the month, location and author of each one. Or click on an image to see an enlargement and then view all of the enlarged images one by one.
The Llewellyn Alexander Gallery accepted three pictures from me this year for their annual ‘Not the Royal Academy” exhibition, and when Jillian phoned to tell me which they had chosen, she made a point of saying “Oh, we want the London ones!”, so good news for us all, I guess!
The exhibition started on June 13th and my “Embankment” painting sold on the first day hurrah! No news since then, but I’m still crossing my fingers for another sale (or two!) before the exhibition ends August 19th
