Bird Sanctuary.




                 Lakeside, Whisby   Oils on canvas board   6 x 6 inches  


The old gravel pits at Whisby, near Lincoln have abundant wildlife on the lakes and ponds.  Created when the gravel workings ceased, this lovely Nature Park is open to visitors all year.  The sun highlighted the golden grasses on the far bank.  

Whippet loves a run here as a part of the reserve is open to dogs.  I took my camera last time and this scene captured my imagination.  I enjoyed loosely brushing the paint across the board to create the lights.
