A morning of catching up with sketching friends Juliet, Jill, Jeanette and Kate and celebrating various exciting events in our lives recently. We decided to book in for a High Tea and found the perfect one at beautiful The Gables, a 1902 Queen Anne style house/function venue in Malvern East, Melbourne.
Of course, we had to sketch. The sandwiches, quiches, scones , and then desserts were beautiful to draw and eat. … and the champagne and the tea cups….Our time went so quickly.
We stayed an extra half an hour outside in the garden. The weather has got a bit cool, otherwise we would have stayed a lot longer. As soon as I saw the photo of the house on the website, I wanted to draw some if it – either the windows, the stained glass, chimneys or some other character feature. I was happiest with this sketch from all my drawings of the day.
