I wanted to capture the new greens of spring at the burn in Figgate Park. Although the park was busy, it was very peaceful sitting on the other side of the water listening to the birds. I never have music playing when I'm out painting, I'd rather immerse myself in the sounds of nature. There are otters and kingfishers on this stretch of the burn, but I wasn't lucky enough to see them on this occasion.
