The swamp elf

This traditional painting with size about 70cm x 100cm is very important to me. I learned a lot! It was sort of crocky drawing but with more serious approach to image elements. First, its big, allowing me to experiment with longer strokes. I didn't have enough colors so I used what I had at that moment. Didn't have a sketch or even idea, I just started to paint some fogy sunset. When it dried, I added some swamp trees and make some space for figure.Whole painting was created very fast, in few hours I think, with palette knife and 3 acrylic colors.
