ha ha ha... you nailed it! I love the trunks that crack and go straight up vertically. Also the wetness of the whole place which is presented not just with colours but is also in the fuzziness of your brush strokes
I adore this kind of places. They always make me want to check what is behind the turnings. I love how you turned a seemingly cliched subject into something fresh. It really promts very intense emotion. Great job.
