0813F_06 Eteaket2
Eteaket Tearoom Edinburgh – A bit out of order – this one should have been included with the other Edinburgh sketch yesterday – my favourite tearoom from last years visit. The china is very special but found the selection of tea not so great this time.

0818T_03 Harris Hills
Harris Hills – Stopped to fill up with petrol (gas) and then realised the wonderful view so pulled over and did this 5 minute quickie
0821S_02 Dun Carloway Broch
Dun Carloway Broch- Lewis. A very impressive old building!
0908W_03 Hardwick Front
Hardwick Hall – more glass than wall. I think this is my greatest achievement of the trip (and longest sketch) as doing all those window panes (neatly) is so not what I normally like doing. I did get a bit bored by the end but enjoyed it far more than I expected.
0909T_02 Blenheim Front
Blenheim Palace. My favourite building in the UK? Spent ‘all day’ here and certainly didn’t run out of things to draw!
0909T_06 Blenheim Front Detail1
Blenheim Detail – loved doing this ‘exploratory’ drawing.

    Hi Liz – LOVE all your sketches. They are fab and so evocative! Can't believe you drew all those little panes of glass – patience is not a virture of mine. Cheers, alix
