I love painting silver birch trees. This one was painted from a photo taken in Spring as the fresh growth was bursting out, but with the winter brown undergrowth being slow on the uptake! The shaft of sunshine brought the scene to life for me.
Colourful Birches
This painting shows a different treatment of the trees, I have used goauche in a thick loose impressionist way.
