Yesterday I received an order of these cute scarecrows (there are three of them) and today decided to sketch one along with my lucky bamboo as a backdrop.
Worked in the Strathmore Visual Journal (Watercolor) pencil first; scarecrow figurine in watercolor first and then pen and ink and the rest pen and ink first before deciding if I wanted to finish in watercolor.
I debated whether to attempt the stucco background or leave it unpainted. I chose to leave the background white as I feared making it too busy trying to capture the stucco.
Pen and Ink using Platinum Carbon pen and Lexington Grey ink and QoR watercolors.
