D.Morrell Watercolour Landscapes - Appendix page-2. ‘Bolton Abbey on the River Wharfe’, watercolour on tinted paper, painted 2009.
Here the the composition focuses the eye on the ‘centre-of-interest’; the abbey, occupying the middle-ground. This is achieved by darkening the tones of the surrounding areas. The silhouette of the edge of the field with the cows and the ‘centre-ground’ tree, draws the eye sharply to this focal point.
