Killed two birds with one visit with the Urbans. Tate Britain's Impressionists in London - a fine and informative exhibition with some stunning paintings. Lots, as usual of Urban Sketchers. My colleague is a Member so we avoided the cold and spent the morning in The Members' Room. Comfortable easy chair sketching, although the dramatic columns, arches and perspectives are anything but easy. Good learning exercise and chance to test the versatility of the new pen/brushes.
In the afternoon the exhibition and as several had braved the cold thought I should. Back to pen and watercolour. Must remember although the delicacy of the medium is lovely striking views need stronger colour.
