The road ahead is the path you have to follow to reach your future success. The road ahead is a dynamic oil painting that shows depth by the reduction of objects, such as the size of the road. The lighter hue of colors of the trees creates the distance. The large foreground tree is darker and has more contrast. I used colors that came straight from the tube to create more rich colors without sacrificing composition. I liked the long shadow and the way that it fell across the road and the grass. The meaning of this painting is that once you follow the road you can reach your destination when you reach the end of the road. It is a continuous search for the final stage of your voyage. The road is the beginning and the end of your journey.
A very important part of a landscape painting is a strong composition. This is the element that unites the entire painting.
