Artwork Description

For many hours they rode on through the meads and riverlands. Often the grass was so high that it reached above the knees of the riders, and their steeds seemed to be swimming in a grey-green sea. They came upon many hidden pools, and broad acres of sedge waving above wet and treacherous bogs; but Shadowfax found the way, and the other horses followed in his swath. J.R.R.Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings, Book 3, Chapter 5: The White Rider

I like the feeling conveyed by your portrayal of the moorland, windswept and barren and boggy.

You took your time getting here Anke! But it's a real pleasure seeing your fantastic paintings at Epilogue. Keep up the great work!

Art at its best.
