Find interest in movement and opposing elements.

Cloudy days and a heavily blanketed snow-covered landscape can make for some monotony.  Flat light seems to make snowy hills roll on, in an endless monotone.

One way to create interest in a scene is to find a way to highlight movement and direction.  The stubble left behind after the fall harvest helps us see the curvy, up and down-ness of these fields. Add a great element in the form of a weed ensconced gulley and the composition becomes a dynamic winter coaster!

Visually, it is the ragged edge of weeds that enter at right and curve through the middle ground to the distant hills that catches our attention first.  That element and its commanding presence wants to accelerates our movement into the distant areas, and perhaps right out of the painting.

Yet, it is the presence of an opposing element – the delicate foreground marks of corn stalk stubble – that slow our visual journey through this painting.
