Another view . . .

Another painting of the same local wildlife area as posted last week.

I am altogether happier with this version which I completed from my photograph in art group last Friday.

This shallow upland lake is a haven for waterfowl ( I have seen 114 species of various birds listed ) and it is home to several rare plants including pillwort, an aquatic fern. The lake is a nature reserve owned by the local Wildlife Trust and over looked by an old chapel which was recently converted to a house. It is a lovely spot for a walk with extensive views of the Black Mountains. The amount of water it holds varies considerably over any one year depending on the rainfall. At the moment it is almost entirely dry.

But that will change shortly- our uk summer seems to have gone and it is currently raining hard!
