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.

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.

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.

Trees that don't know how to be free.
Calculating trees.

i really like like your observations.
i guess the title and the concept initially came
from the idea of trials and struggles:
they bend us this way and that as we try to move onward and upward,
they don't always bear fruit nor is their any law that they should,
but the struggle itself can be a beuatiful thing to behold.
