Wintry Birch

I am really loving how this painting is turning out.  It's my first time really doing detailed trees and its a process that turns out to surprise you!  When I'm in the moment and looking at the paper with out taking a break, I just don't see the details that are forming.  So it's really amazing to put the paint brush down and step away for a bit and then come back with a fresh set of eyes.  This makes for a great winter scape...

Three Leaves

This is my first time experimenting with leaves.. and definitely not my last.  I do like how this turned out, however I am excited to do the next one with a more wet on wet look.  That is one of my favorite things about using watercolor.  It is so sporadic and takes control of the painting all on its own.  I'm really looking forward to the next one.  Maybe I will just use oranges and yellows in the next painting..
