ACEO - Birch Song 1-4

Yesterday and today I have been combining two of my favourite things together in some small paintings. My favourite tree which is the birch with my favourite season autumn.

Since I live on the top of a hill I overlook over 600 acres (242ha) of mixed forest (deciduous and coniferous trees) and when the leaves change into their autumn colours the view is breathtaking.

Since I have completed four paintings over the last two days, as well as having started another three paintings which are in various stages of completion I think I am doing fairly well with my first 30 day challenge.

Although this is only day three, we will see what I can manage to complete by the end of the month.
