    London.

    Various shots of artists boarding a boat on the River Thames for a watercolour Pool of London painting tour organised by artist Edward Swann. Nice shots of girls posing on the boat as it moves along. The boat is moored near the Prospect of Whitby pub at Wapping; good shots of the artists sketching.
