The Gentleman's Sketching Klub Internationale de Londres met today on the steps of St.Paul's cathedral. Our esteemed leader chose the North Bank of the river to draw, but I preferred to do some people watching in and around the church. My first victim was a garrulous lady who was too busy chatting on the phone to notice me drawing her. I didn't intend to make her look 20 years older and it's probably just as well she didn't see it.
Nowadays you have to pay a large entry fee to look around the cathedral. Sod that. However there is a small chapel for quiet prayer and contemplation at no charge, so I took a pew and drew these guys praying. The chap near the pillar was the spitting image of Ricky Gervais. The insert is a blurred photo taken with my phone.
We met up in Paternoster Square for a sandwich and discussed the skills required to draw chickens.
