After a couple of months in cold weather, this birch tree showed signs of life. It is always nice and heartwarming to see fresh green buds appearing on an otherwise bald tree. I guess this is why springtime is always associated with the hope of a new beginning in life.
Just like my cherry blossom, this drawing was done in two stages. First, I drew the bare tree and then added on the buds and new leaves.
Here is the detailed drawing of the bud and new leaves,
and a couple of new leaves on a twig.
