Betty’s Tea rooms IIPosted: November 16, 2015
Well … sort of .
Hit the link above to see my original posting.
Any changes? Well, I’ve tinkered with the text a little. Just a bit here and there, just to tidy it up.
A bed and breakfast in York has requested a print of the sketch for one of there themed rooms, so I’ve polished the writing up a bit so it’s a bit more A2 print-worthy! Yes, you heard it here first … A2! Blimey! I’m used to seeing my little sketches in teeny tiny A5 sketchbooks.
Anyway, back to the story …
When I originally posted the sketch I can’t believe that I missed out the best bit!
As usual before I started sketching I took a quick photo – using my iPad for a change.
Sketched my Fat Rascal and cup of tea – then enjoyed them.
By which time Caroline had finished her meeting and had come to join me for a second round of refreshing tea.
and then we headed back to the car ….
Reaching for iPad … I found that was super hot and the battery was down to a low percentage.
Somehow it had been taking photos the whole time! From the point when my tea and cake arrived – through my sketching and relaxing, then sitting with Caroline chatting and the walk back to the car!
I had about 3500 photos to delete on the way home!
And all of the inside of my bag
Each of the following photographs had several hundred examples. And while I can appreciate their, quite outstanding photographic excellence, it was a bit tedious scrolling down through hundreds of them!
And deleting them too!
Now, I love my drawing bag as much as the next person but 3500 photos from the inside seemed a little extreme!
