Some pieces came from our imagination, some were more expressive.DSC_0169DSC_0170

And some were very closely observed from the gardens around us.DSC_0172DSC_0173DSC_0175DSC_0183 DSC_0187

 

DSC_0196As we finished we used our primed boards from yesterday to paint portraits of the surrounding trees

We pinned them to each tree.

And in true South Park Gardens tradition we made some beautiful patterns on the pavements, using leaves and petals to inspire some rangoli style drawing.DSC_0177 DSC_0181

 

We then arranged all our work for our visitors to see. We were very proud of everything we had achieved.
