Artwork Description

But as the host of Fingolfin marched into Mithrim the Sun rose flaming in the West, and Fingolfin unfurled his blue and silver banners, and blew his horns, and flowers sprang beneath his marching feet, and the ages of the stars were ended."

J. R. R. Tolkien: The Silmarillion, Chapter 13: Of the Return of the Noldor

I'll admit I didn't expect to see this up here so quickly! Nice job. I agree about the skies comment...they're just a little too regular. On the other hand, Fingolfin is great. Man does he look upset!

Very nice work Jenny, I like the dramatic angle you've chosen.

Yes, watercolour is supposed to be a great medium for skies, but I fail at them utterly. I think I should put in a day or two just painting skies! Might be something to do over Carnival. Wink

I don't like the sky too much. Everything else looks great, though, especially the hills and the motion in Fingolfin's hair. Nice to see your version of Galadriel.

Art at its best.
