Artwork Description

Then Tuor bowed in reverence, for it seemed to him that he beheld a mighty king. A tall crown he wore like silver, from which his long hair fell down as foam glimmering in the dusk; and as he cast back the grey mantle that hung about him like a mist, behold! he was clad in a gleaming coat, close-fitted as the mail of a mighty fish, and in a kirtle of deep green that flashed and flickered with sea-fire as he strode slowly towards the land. In this manner the Dweller of the Deep, whom the Noldor name Ulmo, Lord of Waters, showed himself to Tuor son of Huor of the House of Hador beneath Vinyamar.

I really love water colors. But this image reminds me a painting I have seen some years ago in a Tolkien calendar. But you're doing great.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this is your first straight-forward Valar picture. Smile What can I say... I'm muchly impressed! He really seems one with the sea, Tour also looks great.

Nice work Anke,I like the character of the waterlord you've created(convincing waterlord)and the waves & seascape are excellent...

Very nicely done. It is always nice to see another Tolkien ilustrator out there. Ulmo is on my list of things to illustrate when I get around to it. Again nice work.

The water looks great, really full of life, which is difficult when working with watercolour (or so I find). Great painting

Art at its best.
