The best tearoom!

November 20, 2010 | 3 Comments

I did go to T2 teahouse the day I got back from my big trip and was rather jetlagged… so today was special as it was the first time I have had a good sketching session there since the big adventure. Trying to be a bit more adventurous with overall views and trying to capture the darkness of the place… so expect some experimental pages (I AM afraid of using areas of black in my sketches)

SO special to know the staff and to meet a new waitress today (Hi Natalie if you see this!!!!) After all the tearooms I went to overseas, this is still the BEST and so today was a realisation of how special this is to me.

BTW Grand Yunnan tea today and a brand new cup (released in the store opposite on Tuesday)
BTW2 if you are not aware- I made a blurb book of all of last years sketches in here….

    I am enjoying your Blurb book, Lin. I have watched it several times and I know I will watch it some more.

    I hear you about black. You pulled it off, here–really lovely. I do like areas of black in pictures and I study them when I find them, but when I try it,what a smudgy mess I make.

    Hello Liz,
    Thank you for posting your sketch record of your leave. I'm envious of your skills and the creative eye that sees what others miss. I tried sending you an email but it got bounced. Would like to stay in touch.
