Meetings 2021

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 2021.

There were no meetings in January, February or March due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

We held two meetings in April with up to six people in each group. The south group went to Painshill and the north group to Kenwood. Then we held full meetings in May and June at Trinity Buoy Wharf and at the Olympic Site followed by meetings in July at Twickenham Riverside, August at St Katherine’s Dock and September at Southbank.

Several people participated in the third series of Sky Arts  Portrait Artist of the Week, March.

Carol Savage joined the group at the end of 2019.

In March this year (2020), the Drawing London Group’s regular monthly meeting abruptly ceased with the lockdown. Not to be deterred, the group decided if we cannot have monthly meetings, then we will have weekly meetings instead! Using the magic of technology, we appear on screen, sometimes as many as 12 of us, clutching our coffee mugs and chatting about how to manage and stay sane during lockdown. After half an hour, we go off to paint whatever we can find, returning in the afternoon to show off our work. Lockdown has been kind to artists in many ways, giving us time and focus.  Here are examples of work done during these interesting times!.

From July, the Zoom calls stopped and the northern and southern groups met in separate locations in July and August (Kenwood and Waterlow Park and Painshill Park)

But as the news that the pandemic was increasing, Bill wisely decided to suspend all Drawing London meetings until the end of the year. 

A favourite on Facebook has been Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Week, a four hour long programme following one of their prize winning portraitists painting a well known sitter. The art, the chat, and the challenge of making our own work has been popular amongst us. The first series started on 26 April with Akram Khan and ended on 21 June with Mary Beard. A second series began on 18 October with Annie McManus
