Birch Trees Fall Foliage!



sold


This was a painting I just completed for the weekly challenge on DPW. This is my first attempt at painting these trees and it was definitely a challenge with so many vertical lines! 
I used both a brush and palette knife for added interest. The painting isn't quite as dark on the bottom right in person, I think the easel gave it a shadow. I'm going to fix the tree in the middle so that 
the top isn't so pronounced. I just need to blur it a little 
because right now it's almost smack in the middle, which divides the painting in half.

You made a wonderful feeling of space and light in this. Cannot tell they are your first birch trees. Good job!

Thank you Julie! That's what I was going for! I just want it to link a little less like an enchanted forest. I made a few small changes and will post it tonight.Thanks for your visit and comments!
