Painting birch trees

After painting my first palette knife painting last week, I wanted to try the technique in a different setting. So I decided to paint some birch trees, using a mix of ivory black, titanium white, sap green, yellow ochre and burnt sienna. Basically by scraping in the colours of the trees in turn. This is how it ended up:

All in all I think it turned out ok. The colours work pretty good, but the trees themselves could have ended up looking more realistic. It can probably be improved by using the knife in a better way, so this will for sure not be my last attempt at it.
