I visited the Peacock Garden while in the UK,
so called for it's topiary peacocks and of course real ones.
It helped that it was a warm and sunny day and the lovely flowers,
plants and butterflies were at their best.
I have always liked drawing topiary and have started a painting
based on this garden.
The above is a practice sketch to get the feel of the colours and
These are some small peacock feathers drawn in coloured pencil that I picked up along the way,
actually my pockets were stuffed full of them!
