Drawing people and delaying the cream tea!

I did this very fast sketch yesterday of people in the tearoom at Biddulph Grange Gardens - a National Trust property in the north west of England. Mother and I visited yesterday, very dull day and the cold weather has held back a lot of the growth but it was great for seeing lots of hellebores and the first shoots of the giant asiatic lillies which they grow there. Mother was very pleased as she got some seeds of the latter!

Sketch is a double page spread in my Moleskine sketchbook. Mechanical pencil and just a smidgen of coloured pencil on top. Took between 5 and 10 minutes. Mother sorted out the cream tea which we were sharing and poured the tea while I sketched!

Hi Katherine, a lovely page, I really like the markings you use to create atmosphere and form, beautiful in itself,

also tried colored pencil a few days ago in a very small sketch, will show you soon :)
