Day 21 - Lapwing



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.

  3. Dear Sharon - what a beautiful bird and so well done. We do not have these birds in my part of the world. So happy you took time to share. Take care and have a great day.
