Sketching on Location - St James'

This is the fa├žade of St James' Church in Muswell Hill, north London. It was completed in 1902, in Ancaster Stone and Bath Stone Dressings, to a perpendicular Gothic design by the architect Mr Adler.
 

I'm getting back into sketching on location at the moment; and enjoying the weather while it holds out.

 

It's not such a lonely activity as one may think as passersby tend to edge their way over with their heads inclined, often ask questions, and sometimes they sit and chat. Sketching on location is both a peaceful and gregarious activity.


So, come drizzle or shine,  I'm looking forward to honing my drawing/sketching skills this summer.
