This is one of my first fantasy and done in oils. I loved painting "mood" paintings in those days.

i love the mood of the [painting, dark and scary, remings me of the ghost of sleepy hollow, if you have ever heard of that. It has an awsome way of draing you in and kepping your eyes moving around the detail!

Thank you. It is one of the first fantasies I painted, way back when I was first learning how to put paint to canvas.

Beautifully dark and moody. I like the way you've framed him with the elements of the scenery and that turbulent sky as a backdrop is perfect. The eerie, glowing eyes are the icing on the cake. ^_^

You're welcome! I'm pleased that my work can bring a smile to your lips. Yes, most of my work shows the brighter side of me. But I have my darker side too. I don't often let it show though.

the dark riders are actually my fav. characters in LOTR. i love to scary but sad story behind them.everytime i see a picture of them it brings a smile across my face.this one drawing is different from the others.all the others are happy and bright,im glad to see a different side of this.your work is just beautiful and thanks for making me smile today:)

This is an awseome picture! i really like Wraiths be it as it may that they are "evil"... Or do evil's bidding... but who are we to preach that we are any better?

Thanks Louisiana! Always nice to hear your comments.

Thanks Rafal. It is a large painting and while I was painting it, it didn't seem as dark as when viewed from a distance. There isn't much detail though.

Thank you Anna. It certainly is a mood painting.

Hiya Marilyn!
I like this painting a lot too!*_*
It gives me a dark and scary feeling but I like it a lot!
The dark rider reminds me of the Dark Riders from The Lord Of The Rings movie.
But I guess you already knew that...Smile
Hope to see more paintings from you soon!Smile
Bye Bye
Sweet Giggles from Louisiana:)
