It’s the space in between that sometimes makes the composition.

Gulley - watercolor en plein air landscape painting by Tony ConnerThe fields could be the subject of this painting. But what makes them important is the separation that happens because of the weed and sapling filled gulley that runs around and between them. Without it, the three become one large relatively monotonous shape. With it, they are separated into three distinct and varied size shapes.

Contrast is important for me and my paintings. On bright days, sunlight and shadow make obvious dark/light contrasts.  On overcast days, the contrasts are more subtle.

For this painting, the relatively intense greens are contrasted with the gray violets. Also, the curvy shapes of the fields and gulley contrast nicely with the more angular shapes of the distant tree lines and hillsides.
