The picture gives a wide, generalized image of the landscape of Oka. The first cover of fluffy snow lay down on the ground, smoothing its outlines, making the vast expanses even more palpable. The landscape is written from a height, so the viewer’s eye glides easily over the surface of snow-covered hills and freely goes into the distance, where the snowy shroud of the fields merges with the sky covered with gray clouds.
A silhouette of a lonely standing tree in the depth clearly arises on this gray-white background, which further attracts the viewer’s eye to the walls, as well as the receding river, lost among the snowy expanses. The wide, flowing lines on which the landscape is built give it greater clarity and harmony, tranquility and epic scope.
