Urban Sketching: Wren’s London

St Stephen Walbrook

A couple of weeks ago I went on my first Urban Sketching event. Pete Scully organised a sketchcrawl through the City of London starting at St Paul’s Cathedral and ending at Monument, with our aim being to sketch as many of Christopher Wren‘s churches as possible.

I managed 4 but seeing as they’re close to where I live I might try and sketch some more in my own time.

    Very nice Wrens! Great to meet you that day, it was a lot of fun exploring. I sketched St Vedast Alias Foster on the 2014 Wren crawl and the man who worked there gave me a little tour and a bit of history, it was really interesting. Hope to see you on a future sketchcrawl!

      Thanks Pete. It was good to meet you too! I pass by a lot of these churches all the time but this was the first time I’d sat and sketched any of them so it was a lot of fun, and hopefully I’ll get out to sketch a few more on my own. Did you see the little ‘secret’ garden behind the blue doors that adjoins St Vedast Alias Foster? I’m looking forward to getting out on another Urban Sketching day and hope to see you again at some point too. Thanks again for organising this.
