Painting of Yannick Kiggens Thurifera Juniper

I seem to have got back into painting of late and with the nights still dark early and all my deciduous trees that needed re potting, done, I thought id get the brushes out again. I first saw this tree in 2009 and was immediately struck by the deadwood and serpent like live vein.
Deadwood and live vein on canvas. Now for the foliage.This proved difficult 

 All done. Acrylics are difficult to photograph as they tend to shine a bit so it may look a little washed out

Homage to my dead Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa)

Sorry I have been so quiet of late but I'm in the process of buying a new home.at the moment. I have made time to paint a picture during the particularly wet Winter we are having. Work in progress and homage to my very nice Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) that died last year after the long cold spell we had. Acrylic on canvas and 3 ft x 3 ft (1m x 1m approx) I will update with detailed pics when finished.
