Artwork Description

Yavanna steps silently across the Shire, Over brook and stream, field and hedge, woods and copse. Trailing her green mantle, awakening all that sleeps through Melkors wintery mists…
I`ve started re-reading The Silmarillion in the hope of new inspiration…

Hiya John ...my little effort to get into the local art seen around the southwest, although even when I paint straight, there seems to be a fantasy element in it...thanks for dropping in mate...

I`m glad you like the hidden face Marley, as it`s truly well concealed among the foliage and the minds of the veiwers, thats where the real fae resides...haha...

Thanks Scott...the level detail is pretty condensed as the original is 24"x20" on canvas...

WOW. How long did that take? You must be patient!

Astonishing. Damn.

Terry, this is OUTSTANDING! Love it. But I cant find the hidden face Sad

thrax-1's picture

that must have taken an age terry. scrumptuos details and fine control over the lighting. I like that hidden face, it's very well disguised..if of course it is a hidden face that is Tongue and not a bunch of well placed leaves, HAH it's fantastic.

Amazing level of detail. Makes me feel as if I can reach out and touch them. Fantastic work Terry.

Art at its best.
