For our final class of January Cafe Sketching we were back at our favorite tearoom, Ashes, in Jacksonville Beach. Dana, the lovely owner and artist, was so gracious and accomodating to our group of 11 women and their art supplies in a small space. We pre-ordered the English Tea which is beautiful to draw, delicious to eat and plenty for lunch. It’s a charming place to go, and everyone worked so hard to capture the ambiance. Photographing the sketches got a little confusing as we were trying to let others get to the tables.
I showed Dana my newest book about the British Isles and the picture on page 30 of the English tea. It’s actually the sketch I made at Ashes last time I was there! She will be carrying the books now. Thanks for a great day, Dana.
