  1. I love the pansies, But it keeps bringing me here when I try to go to paint an Aspen or Birch tree.
    I’m moving home soon and the theme for my entrance hall is `The New Forest.’
    Each room will have a different tree on a canvas on the door, Bathroom is a photo of an oak tree in the rain,
    My Bedroom a 3D cherry tree, Kitchen an olive tree (not really found in The New Forest but the kitchen’s theme is Tuscany), Living room is a Silver Birch so I’d love to access your tutorial.
