Once upon a feeding time Picture

I've given myself a theme for art class this semester. I've decided I want to paint portraits grounded in a certain mythology.
In traditional paintings myths and legends of old were populair subjects (and they still are)... So I've decided to play with that idea and create the atmosphere of a fairy tale or myth, without it being based on a specific legend or story.
I want to see if through the use of certain paint- and drawing-styles I can conjure up the same associations. This is the first painting in this series of classes. It was done on tape with acrylic paint.
