Europe 09: Day 09 - Newcastle-Upon-Tyne

November 11, 2009 | Leave your thoughts

The ironic thing about this day is that it was an international sketchcrawl day and I did FAR less sketching today than any other on my trip (excepting Sundays of course which is my rest day).

But it was just SO nice to catch up with my friends that I only did a few quick sketches when it wouldn’t impact on our non stop talking (yes, I am a typical girl in this respect … Sketching is a big part of my life but a good chat is far more important!!?)

Of course, the sketch that I did was of a cup of tea and cake… You would expect that of me wouldn’t you?

For those interested in my tea adventures (I should say if anyone else out there is remotely interested) I don’t think that this was an earl grey. The reference to Eary Grey was actually some that I bought (and my friend offered me) and it was Pumphrey’s Earl Grey – unfortunately I haven’t been able to source it in Australia. I still think Taylors of Harrogate is the best – but Pumphreys is definitely second.

In the evening, we went to a concert at The Sage Gateshead – very nice building inside and out – thankfully the lighting was good enough for me to do this quick sketch during the evening.
