Implied Space

In this watercolor painting by Margaret Hamlin, there is evidence of implied space by the way the trees are set in the foreground, middleground, and background. In the foreground, the white trees appear to be closer because they are bigger. The trees behind them, in the middleground, appear to be farther away because they are smaller. In the background, there is atmospheric perspective because the trees are barely identifiable and resemble little sticks rather than trees. There is also pattern in this piece in the swirls in what appears to be the yellow sky. Complementary colors are used (red and green) as well.
