This is my painting, Winter Colors. Like most winter scenes it is predominantly light to mid tones in value (gray scale). The dominant temperature is cool from the blue violet sky and green trees. The snow reflects the violet blue hue of the sky. The path, fence and building are a warm muted orange. The path leads the viewer into the picture. The fence is open and does not stop viewers from moving into the background. The light is from the front of the picture as you can see from the cast shadow of the figure. The building is in 2 point linear perspective but viewers are not locked in the background because the trees, figure and fence bring the viewer into the foreground.
