Latest - Lapwing

Acrylic on Hahnemühle board 248 x 200 mm

I was brought up calling Vanellus vanellus a Lapwing, from their flight, rather than Peewit from their call. They were very common around my uncle's farm, but less so now. Painted on my last piece of Hahnemühle board, shame they stopped making it.
