colours, trees

It's been awhile since I last posted, I hated my last painting, it was going so well until I painted the branches and the leaves, urggg. Maybe it's my lack of sleep being a new parent again, or I didn't collect proper reference, or step back and look at it and see if it was working. Anyways I am not pleased with it.

I decided I needed to collect reference, leaves, flowers, plants.... I love their colours and yet butchered painting it correctly. Then I went through my paints and made paint swatches of their colours. See pic attached.

Also, attached is a work in progress of a new birch tree piece I am doing.
