Oooo good style choice, the texture on the trees work nicely in guiding the viewer through the piece to the leaves up top. :nod:

I was wondering, how many vanishing points do you need with a picture like that? Been trying and failing to draw a maze.
madbaumer37's avatar
no vanishing points used. it's not important that it looks realistic, as long as the illusion of it's realism has been successfully implied. the imperfections of a work of art are the thumbprint of the artist's soul.

Thanks! I will strive for that.

It's interesting because of two things: (1) the red. Nature is rarely red, and only (usually) in the fall before things die, and (2) the regularity. Nature is almost always random and curvy. Usually, when I paint I have to fight the urge to make patterns in the trees and branches and leaves.

This has your usual sense of foreboding, though. It makes me think... damn industrialism.

I really like the color scheme. The composition is great too, it keeps your eyes busy.

thank you!
all of the kindness and support and generosity i've been receiving
over the last 24 hours has had me pretty tongue-tied as well. :faint:
Like I said, "There are no straight lines in nature."
Were you bathing in the woods?
