"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Lapwing print - 3 more colours

I've made quite a bit of progress on the print with 3 more colours finished. The first blue above finishes the sky and adds the shadowed areas of the birds wings.

Then an orange brown, this will only show in the area beneath the birds tail and in the foreground field.

 A darker blue adds the trees and church tower on the far horizon and some darker shadows beneath the birds wing. Only two more colours to go from here.

Great to see each stage of the process with the Lapwing print
