Whinchat This is an acrylic painting of a Whinchat that managed to brighten up my day in between a sleepless night and a 9 hour shift in the chip shop. One of my absolute favourite birds, this is the first time I've completed a satisfactory painting of one.

That's georgeous, Nick. I love the movement in the whole thing -- the brush strokes, and the marching fenceposts.
