Tree painting:
Through the Silver Birch

There's something about Silver Birch trees isn't there. With their white trunks and flickering leaves that dance in the slightest of breezes. I'd been looking for an opportunity to study painting trees when I came across this group. Surprisingly challenging and enriching because of it. They take some capturing.

This is the second painting I've done infront of this group of trees. The first painting didn't quite cut-it, so I painted over it. This little painting though, has captured what I saw very well. I'm very pleased with it. A good sense of the sunlight, the light and dark, the movement in the leaves and tranquility which accompanies these lovely things.
