Freyr Vs. Surt

This piece is my personal favourite from all of the paintings I completed. I love the contrast between Freyr, the god of fertility and life, and Surt the fire god.  I wanted to continue using symbolism as much as possible instead of taking the stories literally.

I think the anatomy of the boar and the 2 faces is done really well and for the most part the brush strokes are done well. The face on the right does not look as good as the one on the left. I spent too much time on this piece, and it took away from time i could spend on the other pieces.

I like the small things in this piece that bring the painting to life, such as the distant trees, blades of grass and city skyline in the background.
