Artists “See” Naturally

I recently saw a social media post about wood. In particular the patterns of wood at the cellular level magnified a gazillion times. The images instantly made me think of the work of other artists and even my own work.

As artists, and the way we painstakingly pay attention to detail, do we “see” naturally, what scientist study through a microscope?

Below is the link and images to the study of wood at the cellular structure.

The work that I have made that “feels” similar in visual content to the tree cellular structure pictured above is pictured below.
