In this painting, I very obviously used logs to lead the eye into the painting (lower left side and also lower left at the bottom) then up to the main aspen tree. However, I didn’t stop there – the logs lead the eye from the main aspen tree all the way back into the painting in kind of a zig-zag pattern.
Sometimes simplifying is the best thing an artist can do!

You may see lots of aspen paintings in all seasons on my web site, www.cecyturner.com, under Landscapes and also under Plein Air Paintings. Enjoy!
