In Fig.07 you can see that I made more adjustments to the color and tone, as well as the pose. I felt the right knee was competing with the axe too much and that moving it back would make the pose feel more dynamic. This also helped bring the axe forward in space towards the viewer. I started to play with the background elements, adding in some simple branches as compositional elements, trying to create some interesting angles between the tree branches and the axe.

The almost finished piece that you can see in Fig.08 contains more little details. You can also see that at this point I had paid more attention to the materials. At this final stage it's all about nailing the focal points and adding small details and touches here and there to make it sing. I was painting much slower at this point, constantly evaluating every stroke and trying to make the details really count. I also subtly adjusted the value and color balance of the painting in an attempt to strike the exact mood I was looking for. After several hours of detailing and minor adjustments I called it a day .
