Some make your eye follow a path with an actual path in the picture, like “Forest Path” does. This forest tree art has a clear dirt path in the center of the image that fades as it gets further into the distance with rows upon rows of trees surrounding it. The darker color of the dirt floor also catches your attention because of how much light is within the image.
“Birch Forest” by Lisa Congdon is fairly unique compared to the other images I mentioned because it is a bit of an optical illusion. Many other pieces of forest tree artwork also includes a lot of limbs and leaves. This image only has the trunks of birch trees in the image with two very distinct colors as the background color and the color leading into the foreground. The only way to tell there is any depth here is by looking at the foreground, where you are likely to follow the pattern the tree trunks go from the foreground into the background.
