Hiya all! I am working on this piece now and then trying to get a good interesting dark, mysterious and warm feel of the painting, the deep dark pine-forests of Sweden. Basically the concept idea is a young prince seeking advice or something like that by a witch in a tarn, who also tries to lure him in. I am not happy with the colors and values, I feel it lacks some "oomph!" that is very much needed.
I would very much appreciate some advice on how to push it "further" before I start rendering it. It was very much inspired by the Swedish artist John Bauer.
