Silver Birch Saplings

61 x 91.5 cm | Hosokawa Kozo
Season shifts, muted colours, softness and gentle falling leaves. Space to see the branches and a promise of new growth in the already forming buds. This is a group of self seeded silver birch saplings painted on handmade heritage Hosokawa paper from Japan.

The colour range in this piece is subtle, translucent green and slightly rusty or weathered yellow and brown. I used two brushes, the smallest writing brush for the delicate twigs, branches and buds and a beautiful handmade brush from Kyoto for the leaves.
