Tiny Beeches in Snowy Ground – Watercolour

Nothing special about this but I was intrigued by the way these small trees have kept some of their leaves through the whole winter. The snow is fast going but these plants stand, in a frost covered hillock in the local woods, with most of their leaves attached. The trees are only about 2 feet high and I had some difficulty in getting some scale into this scene. In my first attempt, I drew a small mouse, peeking out from behind the tree. This didn’t work as it looked as if the trees were “normal height” with a giant rodent underneath. Suggestions welcome.
