A Birch Springs Back to Life

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.
