Snowy Birches – Watercolour

Just a small study of some of my favourite trees. In these parts, Birches are among the first to loose their foliage in the Autumn but the first to burst into life in early spring. Lying under this snow its almost possible to imagine them getting ready to go, rather like a sprinter on the starting blocks. If we don’t get another cold snap I reckon a change will be noticed in around eight weeks.
