19/12: Silver Birch study

I wasn’t going to paint until the new year but I thought I’d explore a new idea to escape the rain today.  It’s a rough study and has parts that I think are a bit too graphic but I really like the scruffy patches of paint. Kind of reminds me of Kandinsky.I will be making some colours sharper and will get rid of the lines around the leaves. Next installment after new year. Thanks to all my regular visitors – have a great break over the next week or so.
