Landscapes of the outdoors including trees, forests, mountains, valleys, fields, rivers, ponds, lakes, seas, and even portraying people in comparison to different views that show work of art in contrast of many natural colors and mediums that are in nature. 

This drawing is by Louis Carrogis de Carmontelle and now sits in the J. Paul Getty Museum. Medium used is watercolor and gouache over black and red chalk on off-white paper. It shows Marie d'Albert de Luynes taking up gardening. This reflects my theme because it shows how the contrast of colors in nature (tree, ground, bushes) with a person in art.
This drawing is by OSHITA Tojiro and now sits in the Iwami Art Museum. Medium used is watercolor on paper. It shows the landscape of what the season of autumn looks like at Hibara Lake.This reflects my theme because it shows a lake from nature concentrated mainly with watercolors contrasting.
This drawing is by J. M. W. Turner and now sits in the National Gallery of Victoria. Medium used were watercolor, wash and gouache with some scratching out. It shows the Rigi Mountains over the lake to the east of Lucerne. This reflects my theme because of how the sketching of the mountain color changes on its slopes and the scene below showing different colorations.
This painting is by Ladislav Mednyánszky and now sits in the Slovak National Gallery and in the Mansion of Strážky. Medium used was a painting, oil on canvas. It shows the river bank in bloom. This reflects my theme by contrasting the details of the river bank with the river and cattle in the background.
This drawing is by Paul Gauguin and now sits in the Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston. Medium used was oil on canvas. It shows a village in the 1870s. This reflects my theme because it uses lively color with brushstrokes to reflect the village homes, ground, trees and valley surrounding.
This european painting is by Alfred Sisley and now sits in The J. Paul Getty Museum. Medium used was oil on canvas. It shows a forest landscape with a view of a vineyard on a hill. This reflects my theme by showing the greens of the trees and the light of a summers day.
This drawing is by Thomas Gainsborough and now sits in the Yale Center for British Art. Medium used watercolor over traces of graphite on medium, slightly textured, cream wove paper laid down on old mount with black ruled lines, in turn laid on card.

This drawing is by Johan Christian Dahl and now sits in The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, in Norway. It shows mountains, valleys, rocks, rainbows, and trees within its landscape. This reflects my theme by giving a visual of how all of these things in nature contrast in color to make beautiful scenery.
This drawing didn't have an artist but now sits in the Cincinnati Museum Center. Medium used was oil on canvas. It shows a view of the forest hills in Kentucky. This reflects my theme by showing the way the color of the sky brings light to the hills and trees within the landscape.
This drawing is by Winslow Homer and now sits in the Museum of Fine Arts, in Boston. Medium used was watercolor over graphite pencil on paper. It shows the sky in the background along with mountains where the trees become the focal point. This reflects my theme by showing how the contrast of colors can make your eyes view the trees first instead of the background in nature.
