I have had fun working on a series of mixed media paintings based in Wicken Fen, a National Trust nature reserve situated in Cambridgeshire.

The reserve consists of reed beds, boardwalks and a river, not forgetting the iconic Wind Pump, which appears here in the first of my three paintings.  I visited on a clear blue sky day in mid March.
