Towers and Tea From Sydney


My turn to receive a card from Liz Steel. Another super combination of architecture and afternoon tea!
I particularly like this side with the Sydney Town Hall tower on it. The unfinished towers in the rear, which i guess are office buildings, give a great insight as to how Liz works.  Basically no hesitancy and no fuss!  I need to try and instill that into my own pen work.

The rear as ever has beautiful stamps and the special one of Borromini.  I met up with Liz while she was in London a few weeks back and we had tea and scones then too. Sadly our tea didn't come in such a brilliant tea pot.  This colour red is lovely!!

Thanks Liz, it's a super card and a wonderful reminder for me too of our afternoon.  I hope you'll make it back to London soon!

This one makes me very homesick! I've always loved my first glimpse of the Town Hall when I go home. Great sketch, Liz and beautiful still-life of tea.

Another great tea-time sketch! Tea sounds pretty nice too.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to depict architecture so truly - yet with the artistic touch. Beautiul card Liz.

I agree with Bridget - a lovely spontaneous, lively sketch and then the very very Liz tea!

How lovely to have had tea and scones together, and then received this from Liz. Love the iconic tower and the buildings behind left just so!

Alison said it perfectly about Liz's architectural sketches -- "Basically no hesitancy and no fuss! I need to try and instill that into my own pen work."

Another wonderful lively sketch - I love the composition! Glorious colours for the cafe sketch!

Lovely, I always want to fix tea after seeing a Liz creation.

"Towers and tea"...it sounds like the title to a poem...or a song...but hey, we have it both...on a postcard! Beautiful!
