Artwork Description

The next day at the hour of sunset Aragorn walked alone in the woods, and his heart was high within him; and he sang, for he was full of hope and the world was fair. And suddenly even as he sang he saw a maiden walking on a greensward among the white stems of the birches; and he halted amazed, thinking that he had strayed into a dream, or else that he had received the gift of the Elf-minstrels, who can make the things of which they sing appear before the eyes of those that listen. For Aragorn had been singing a part of the Lay of Lúthien which tells of the meeting of Lúthien and Beren in the forest of Neldoreth. And behold! there Lúthien walked before his eyes in Rivendell, clad in a mantle of silver and blue, fair as the twilight in Elven-home; her dark hair strayed in a sudden wind, and her brows were bound with gems like stars.J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings, Book 6, Appendix A: Of Aragorn and Arwen

Beautiful, this is almost exactly how I imagine the scene. Your water colours are truly lovely.

Well, well, well... I thought I'd never see the day. Wink Now all you should do is report all this stuff to the 'Lord of the Rings' gallery.

Art at its best.
