Abstract Shapes,Trees and Leaonardo Da Vincei

The Patterns that the branches the trees make are ever a source of wonder the triangles and complexity of it all.

Leonardo da Vinci

seems to have had a pretty good eye for detail and event though the above study was trying to work oot the structure and growth of trees I think it is not a million miles away from abstraction, just think if he had ex;p[ored that idea then the whole of art might have changed course

sometimes you cannot analysis and you just have to go with the flow
