Sketching with Liz Steel and Borromini

I spent a very enjoyable day yesterday at Tate Modern with Liz Steel and the little bear (Liz and Borromini).  We sat at the windows overlooking the Thames on the seventh floor of Tate Modern, opposite St Paul's cathedral and sketched and talked and talked and sketched and drank tea, ate lunch, drank more tea, sketched more, talked more.  A really fine day.



The funny bit was when our respective plates of Griddled fillet of salmon with broad bean, pea & mint risotto had been served and we both pulled out our sketchbooks and started to sketch.  The waiter came up and asked us if everything was OK - to which we both chorused - "Yes - we sketch our meals!"

Here's my sketch - which is both dishes and Liz's sketch of both dishes.

Liz goes home on Thursday after another epic trip around Europe.  You can see her trip uploads to Flickr here.
