Howe Farm in the spring and summer. This is painted with a high center of interest thus making the field very important but is it distracting from the farm buildings?
It would only be so, if there are too many darks in the field. Keep your darkest darks and lightest lights in either the foreground, middle ground or background when composing a landscape.
What painter put the darks in the background of a landscape??
Maynard Dixon, one of America's greatest painters!
