Stratford-upon-Avon, England

high tea at Hobson's Patisseries and of course, we had to draw our cake!
I taught a week long workshop in Stratford-upon-Avon, UK, with The Blue Walk. People came from Canada, Australia, Puerto Rico, and the US to join me as we sketched and watercolor on location. (Each day, I would do a demonstration and class with the students. And, as you can see, we also traveled and saw the sites together!)
So many beautiful canals in Stratford-upon-Avon

An evening of fun at Cox's Yard in Stratford
At Cox's Yard, we were interested in ordering Pimm's Cups, but we'd never tried one. The manager assured us to order two pitchers and if we didn't like them, he'd drink them! They were delish, like Sangria!

I love showing the student work. They are all so different! Even though they all watched the same lesson.
