Implied Depth and Space
This image is a great example of implied depth and space. The image is of a grassy field that looks like it goes forever until it meets with the horizon. A the sun sets, things closer to the bottom of the picture (Things drawn to be closer to you) are darker. As you move farther back in the photo (Things moving away from you) the things seem to get a little lighter due to the closeness of the sun setting. Also the flowers at the bottom of this painting are clearer then what is towards the top. This is what naturally would happen if you were in this field. Love this painting.
