Artwork Description

My vision of the White Lady of Rohan.
"They were clad in warm raiment and heavy cloaks, and all over the Lady Eowyn wore a great blue mantle of the colour of deep summer-night, and it was set with silver stars about hem and throat. Faramir had sent for this robe and had wrapped it about her; and he thought that she looked fair and queenly indeed as she stood there at his side. The mantle was wrought for his mother, Finduilas of Amroth, who died untimely, and was to him but a memory of loveliness in far days and of his first grief; and her robe seemed to him raiment fitting for the beauty and sadness of Eowyn."

-J R. R. Tolkien. The Lord of the Rings. Book Six, The Return of the King.

Nell, very nice watercolor. The subtleness and style work well.

I love the pretty, slightly stylized face, the treatment of the hair, and the cloak/star design is really cool. A very nice pic overall!
