River Tea Rooms



Escaping the house for a few hours, I simply drove!
I ended up at St. Ives and parked the car to walk along the river and perhaps sketch from the bridge I remember being there from previous visits. However, the tea rooms sign caught my eye and my fancy and before long I had a table along the river dressed with a latte and the prettiest lemon cup cake I've ever seen.
I sketched both the cup cake and the view across the river.

Wow...Anita! the cupcake is great...but the view is amazing.. I don't know how you switch so easily from still life to architecture/landscape. I love the movement in the water and the serenity of the scene...just lovely...........deni........;)

I'm trying to figure out how you could focus on your painting with such a delicious cupcake right in front of you!
