Anita came for the weekend arriving lunch time Friday and we spent the whole day Saturday at Blickling Hall just 10 miles from home. Altogether I did 6 sketches despite visit to the coffee shop as we arrived, and a good break for lunch at the Bucks Arms nearby. If I remember correctly we even had a teatime stop for latte and cake. Stunningly different architecture with all these corner towers and lots of bay windows. The grounds were beautifully kept and there were lots of walks down to the lake and up through the woods.
Here's the first sketch on arrival in the gardens - immediately getting the tower wrong, so redrew it alongside in more detail.
We were lucky enough on walking through the woodland pathways to get to the temple just as a wedding ceremony was taking place. So we sat on the rather damp grass to sketch the temple and beautiful azaleas surrounding it. You might just spot the bride and groom inside the temple!! I added the wedding bells when I got home.
