Trish and John became like family for me during my stay – choosing special cups for me and giving me the grand tour of their amazing collection.
I wasn’t trying to push myself with my sketches here – but just to enjoy the experience and try to take it easy. However, I did realise that I was enjoying the break from inklines, that it was better to draw my morning tea as a whole rather than one object after the other (I always start with the scones since they get eaten first)
I found that I was too relaxed to feel up to sketching the interiors.. I did a few views but there was so much to paint on my table.
I was a touch emotional saying goodbyes on my last visit…I had had such a special time there!
