Hey people! :)

This is my WIP, I'm taking "An unfamiliar place" as prompt

Hope you like it!

Yeah, that's pretty rad! Surely not a place I'm familiar with!

Having a tough time with the palette. Not sure whether to go for a more monochromatic piece, or put more colors in there. Maybe also too saturated. Any thoughts?

Number 3 is my favorite!

I agree. Number 3 benefits from the extra greens but still has the slightly chilly feel without the warmer brown.
