Lovely art piece, been back to view your painting several times and I get the same reaction of some unresolved space, though.

At first glance, the figure appears to be standing inside an ice crevice, because the “white “ area in front of the figure is almost of the same value as the white mass of snow & ice at the back of the figure thus these two white areas share the same plane. The dark edge in front of the figure’s feet reads as the bottom floor of the ice crevice even more than the edge of the mountain cliff.

The contour line of the cliff’s edge in the upper right corner of the painting does help in creating a sense that the figure is standing on a mountain ledge.

As I follow that contour line down towards the figure ,it loses its conviction as being the edge of a cliff but begins to be read (with the help of the white are- previously mentioned) as the inside contour line that defines the ice crevice. The black flecks can be read as dirt on the surface of the ice crevice, although , you probably intended the black flecks to read as small , shapes seen at some distance down the mountain face.

The addition of the flying bird, attempts to cement the belief that it is a rock cliff that we are starring at and that the figure is standing on. But even that area where the bird is , can be viewed as the inside of the ice crevice. At least, for me, the black flecks and bird aren’t enough to resolve the ambiguity of the space in the painting as to where the figure is standing, ie , on a cliff or inside an ice cervice.
