I fell in love with all the amazingly created scarecrows in the beautiful gardens, from which I chose two to create ink and watercolour paintings. Well, at long last here they are. Lots of fun to paint. I simplified the background gardens a little and adjusted the compositions slightly. The crows might look funny, but I copied the fact that they had been made with plastic drinks bottles!!!

Weren't they clever ideas? Afraid I can't remember which gardens either of them were in or the people who created them, but I hope they come to the exhibition in the Rectory Gardens (paintings in a marquee) this coming weekend and see how they inspired me.
