All week I've been wanting to repaint the birch tree picture from my watercolor class last Monday evening. I finally got a chance today. I wanted to try it vertical rather than horizontal and with more yellow than red. Although I loved the painting I did last week, it's not true to color. Birch have yellow leaves in the fall, not red. In fact, you don't see that much red in Alaska unless you are looking at fireweed or Mountain Ash. So here's my second attempt. My husband likes it better than the first. I'm not sure. I like the leaves up high, but am not as happy with the bottom. I need to paint it about 50 more times until I remember and understand all the lessons learned.
