Everything everyone just said.

I doubt that any could embody Tolkiens "Farewell to Lorien" scene, but you come pretty dang close!

Guest's picture

This is totally unlike I imagined it, maybe that's why it is so be beautiful. The details and colors are amazing, having that much creativity should be made illegal.

Guest's picture

Wow...

I only wish it were bigger so I could savor the details!

your my idol

Oh, wow. Wonderful interpretation of Lorien! You are a watercolor genius! I love the way everything seems to glow. Is the seated Elf Galadriel and the one behind her Celeborn?

Well, apparently "Lothlorien" is not a word that Tolkien made up. It is used in other places, and has been used in other places for a long time now, so it is not copyrighted to Tolkien Enterprises.

This painting is absolutely wonderful! There's one thing I wonder about tho: the 'Buy a print'-option. The title holds a name copyrighted by Tolkien Ent, so I thought that made it a 'no-no'? The reason I'm asking is that I got Lotr-inspired pics myself that I wish to print.

Hi Stephanie. You are one of my favourite artists on epilogue, and this has to be my favourite of your works! So magical. I'm a massive Lord of the Rings fan, and I think you really captured the magical essence of Lothlorien Smile

Guest's picture

Still love it wery much Stephanie!

Guest's picture

its wonderful! this is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good

Guest's picture

Hi Stephanie! This is still one of my favorite paintings. You really are as talented as anyone else out there. Your work with watercolors is masterful. I love paintings that capture the beauty and subtleties of light, and you certainly have done that here. I have to say that the small jpeg doesn't do the actual painting justice. You miss out on the blending of the watercolors.

I struggle at watercolor, but this is absolutely F.L.A.W.L.E.S.S, beautiful. Kudos!

I am speechless... I could stare at this for hours and hours! You really inspire me to go back to watercolours, you know Smile

Guest's picture

you have got me convinced that these are Galadriel and Celeborn. I couldn't have pictured them any better in my mind =) Delicate and beautiful and elves

Guest's picture

I think this one is the best

I am always amazed by the amount of details in your paintings and the harmonic choice of colors. It's a wonderful imagination of Lothlorien.

Thanks!

I've yet to read the hobbit myself. I only read the trilogy books.

Guest's picture

I read all the Lord of the Rings books including the Hobbit, and I love it! But anyway, that is the most beautiful picture I've every seen! Awesome jod Stephanie Law!!

puimun's picture

Heh. tell me if you find it. =)

I got the idea for this while sitting next to this pond in japan. It was autumn, and the sun was coming through the leaves just right, making everything really glow golden, and shimmering in reflections from the water. I had just finished reading lord of the rings, and it struck me that -that- was what lothlorien should look like with its golden trees....

rhiamon's picture

OK...where's the map? I want to BE there! Beautiful scene!

Guest's picture

This is a very good example of what Lothlorien should have looked like in the movie. It is exactly as i pictured it reading the books.

puimun's picture

Yes, that is Galadriel and Celeborn.

Guest's picture

Oooh! I really like the details in the swan boat and...well everything else. That's getting monotonous isn't it... This picture depicts almost everything I imagined Lothlorien to be. But is that Lord Celeborn and Lady Galadriel where the rays of light are?

Guest's picture

~Sighs~How beautiful!The swan boats of the Teleri, drawn by the swans of Ulmo originally...I can almost picture Alqualonde somewhere in the distance!It is positively dreamlike! Fantastic job...is that a Alfirin flower the maiden is holding? I must give you credit for capturing such a haunting image flawlessley! Fantastic!~Sighs and smiles~

You just need to let the layers of watercolor dry in between applying colors. That way they don't blur into one another and get blurred.

Art at its best.
