Which is how come I came to draw paintings of Venice by Bonington and Canaletto in the Wallace Collection (to follow in the next post) - while everybody else was sketching at the Museum of London.
Anyway, I had a great time followed by a visit to the Wallace Restaurant (run by the omnipresent Peyton & Byrne) for a very late lunch which turned into a Cornish Cream Tea instead as they'd run out of the dish I wanted for lunch.
I'll get verbally shot if "he who must not be bored while I sketch" sees this! Cream teas are banned - we're both on a diet!
The details are:
- on the left finger sandwiches with the crusts cut off (naturally!) - egg mayonnaise, tomato and cucumber, ham and smoked salmon
- a very nice scone and Cornish clotted cream and preserves (very nice!)
- Jasmine tea
It's a very pleasant way to spend an afternoon sketching........
