Six Birch Trees

Birch Trees
by Cheryl Harris White
Acrylic on Canvas
18" x 18"

This is a different painting from yesterday, same style. The smaller picture above  is phase one.  I put the leaves where I thought trees might look good basically. You can kind of see where the leaves of the foremost tree were going on the left side there. ...Then on the large photo, you see the finished painting.  I used a palate knife loaded with thick white paint to add the trees.  I let some color show on the white bark of the birch trees just for fun. I also liked grounding the trees this time, showing where they sprout from the ground.  I loved the result. I'm definitely going to do more like this!
