Snug as a bug.... Reminds me so much of crawling in for the night. All comfy and cozy warm under the blankets.

I entered the pair that way because I noticed just how "much" the top parts of a tree resembled its basal structure!

Here they are once again

Still very attractive...and no dizzying effect.

Yes, there is a similarity. Even as a child, I used to draw the roots of a tree. I guess they made an impression on me.

I don't want to get too far off track here but...Now how do I say this so you understand where I'm coming from. Hmmmmm?
Have you ever tried drawing just the voids or edges surrounding a subject rather than the subject itself?

I've not done much of anything with drawing for years...but I understand what you are saying. Drawing the negative space or being aware of the negative space helps with accuracy of drawing the subject that is actually there and not what we think it looks like.

Or are you saying to just draw the voids/negative spaces as he artwork itself?
