This piece is truly fantastic and seems like a lot of careful thought has been put into creating it. The restriction of using mostly warm colours gives this piece a haunting effect which is enhanced by the herbalists sinister eyes and bewitching expression. The piece has been painted to perfection and a very good sense of a tonal range has been used, creating a very lifelike subject. The potion itself has been painted fantastically and adds too the perhaps unsettling mood which has been created. The use of dotting for the powdery colours also makes the herbal remedy quite magical and enchanting.
