I really didn't think I'd get a painting in this weekend but thought I'd squeeze one in before going to bed so I don't fall too far behind as I very much doubt I'll get a chance to paint tomorrow evening. Lapwings are beautiful birds which you will find on farmland and wetlands. I love their splendid crest feathers and the subtle variations of colour on their wings. The lapwing has suffered significant declines recently and is now a red list species. This painting was done from a photo by Gary Jones at RSPB Conwy.
