Hatfield Forest – the small lake sketch

Hatfield forest is an amazing find a few minutes south of Stansted airport. An ancient royal hunting park, it is now a National Trust property centred on a lake. That’s not the one in this drawing. The main lake is big enough to go boating on and watch the swans and ducks parade around. This work shows the nearby, smaller pondy lake. It’s a charmingly overgrown place.
