Urban Sketching in Oxford


Earlier this week I spent the afternoon in Oxford with a small group of local Urban Sketchers. I’d been invited to a few sketching afternoons in Oxford but this was the first one that I was able to get to. We spent 2 hours sketching in the Museum of Natural History, which is a very nice building with lots of interesting things to look at and draw. Although it wasn’t a particularly cold day it was nice to be indoors with a comfortable chair to sit on.

At the end of the 2 hours we all got together in the cafe for a cup of tea and to have a look at each other’s work. It was a fun afternoon and something that I’ll hopefully repeat at some point in the new year. Many thanks to Dougie for organising this event and for inviting me to join in!

      Thanks Joy! Not really a typical day for me but it was really nice to get out of London and be in different surroundings for a few hours. xx

    I think this is indeed a very good place to sketch I will keep that in mind as we have here in Belgium such a Museum too and I haven’t been there since my childhood . You made a very beautiful sketch !

      Thanks Debora. It was certainly nice to be sketching indoors for a change.
