Warm Mist

Commissioned painting. The aim was to portray a magical forest. I drew inspirations from a lot of places but I believe Fangorn and Sintra, fictional and real, are what influenced me the most. I love forests...fantasy is inherent to them. I don't know if it's the green tones, the wind blowing through the trees or the fresh air...there is just something special about them.
I also took a lot of inspiration from the beautiful paintings by master painter Peder Mork Monsted
Let me know your thoughts.

Wonderful, as usual. Your grasp of light from back to foreground is superb.

This image caught my attention immediately, The epic-ness and story telling is just awesome. Really love the attention to detail as well.

Amazing as always

Hi there Andreas,

I really like this painting. The instant I saw it, it reminds me of the Yggdrasil, the tree of life from Norse myth. Keep up the good work, you've just earned yourself another fan!
