Toasty Warm at T2 - from Liz


Though Liz and I are experiencing similiar freezing cold weather on our southern side of the globe, her postcard arrived full of the warmth of her beloved T2 tearoom, a place I think I could walk into and feel perfectly at home after getting to know the cups, teapots, decor and even the menu through Liz's sketches. She was sitting next to a South African man as she sipped her delicious sounding tea - "a green oolong base swathed in sublime notes of nougat & almonds to warm the coolest of nights." (and boy, are we having the coolest of nights!) and sketched this card. I love seeing close up her confident lines and washes, and on the other side her amazing architect's handwriting plus the famous Borromini Bear stamp.

I'm so looking forward to meeting them both, and seeing lots more sketches, when we join the Urban Sketchers in Lisbon next month!

The cosiness glows through - and yes, isn't her handwriting lovely too? The patterns and clutter of objects makes a strong pattern in this one.

Another gorgeous card and so very Liz.

How nice you can both come north and get some sun! ;)

I agree with Vivien, the warmth of the colours in this postcard gives a feeling of being very snug and a nice place to be

I love the warm colours here Liz, it looks happy and inviting! And yes...isn't it a true Liz we have here once again!

So very Liz indeed. Her published book of sketches will be wonderful if her postcards are a taster.

Yes, very welcoming. I can smell the flavor of the tea ...

Gorgeous colour and atmosphere, Liz. T2 would be wise to order some postcards for their clients.
