Road May Be Slippery

Road May Be Slippery, 12 x 16
I was going after drama with this piece.  To achieve this, I used a high horizon, angled lines, and bold contrast with both color and light.  When planning out my composition, I took a little extra time to carefully place all of my angles.

I normally don't include items such as telephone poles in my paintings, but I thought their placement here would be a great way to create more depth in the piece, adding to the drama.  I added those last, and it really did make  big difference with increasing the feeling of distance of the painting.
