Birch Trees

Some beautiful natural birch trees along our driveway in our front yard. I have always loved the texture and color of the birch bark as it peels. In the fall, the leaves turn a bright yellow early in the foliage season as a contrast to the greens and browns of early fall.

    Really beautiful, I like how you let the distance fade out, and kept the forefront detailed and sharp

    Thank you Rebecca. It did achieve the affect of depth and was fun to paint.
