So magical... I admire your art very much, Larry. Like someone said, it's like looking into a dream. Your absolutely the bigest influence in my own art. You must be inhuman or something man!:] I really meen this whn I say it; i can look at some of your images for hours... Your the king!

This is kind of eerie. You can almost hear the the giant's muffled footsteps, like a barely audible roll of thunder in the distance with a bit of tree rustling. Yet with the ambience of the day you'd think it were just the wind or something.

Thanks Bill - I love Tolkien, read it every year, but have been holding back illustrating him because he is so Over illustrted at the moment, what with the movies and so forth. I think if I was going to do it though, I would pick obscure scenes from the story that are never illustrated, like for example maybe the Gaffer in his tater garden.

That's just great!! I'd love to see you paint a few Tolkien's hobbit illustration Larry - It was written for your style!

Thanks Dan - A lot can be done with watercolour but, I am using gouache here too. There are many passages of opaque paint here.

You really caught my attention with this piece. The amount of depth you get with watercolors is fantastic. My hat's off to you, Larry.
