To solve the Sorcerer painting in Elden Ring, you will first need to obtain the painting from Castle Sol, located in the northern region of the map. You’ll have to obtain this first in order to complete the rest of the puzzle.
The area depicted in the Sorcerer painting is located just southwest of Castle Sol, beside a shack. Make your way here and you’ll find the solution area for the Sorcerer painting.
