All done Can't Post

Finished the painting at about, midnight (?) last night. Don't really remember. But here it is, Strider and Hobbits walking through the wilderness. Had a wee bit of trouble with the mist, but I don't think it looks to bad.

Oh,aw...my...*exhalation of breath-thing with strange sound* [In reply to] Can't Post

I love to take pictures of the deep woods for their grand mystery and raw presence and this very much has that essence. I was quickly and deeply drawn into your painting. This painting is real to me, if you understand. I love it.
The mist can gather like that and it can be lit a bit from that break in the tree canopy.
And the figures of Aragorn and the hobbits look neat and spot on to me.

I always wanted to get a good minds eye concept of Frodo's new place at Crickhollow *hint*:).

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

May the grace of ManwŰ let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of ManwŰ S˙limo

Great atmosphere! [In reply to] Can't Post

The mist looks fine; I especially like how you painted the sky showing through the trees.

It's hard to spot Strider and the Hobbits, though, especially with the stump next to them. On the other hand, the stump gives a sense of scale to them.

We're discussing the BBC Lord of the Rings Radio Play on the Movie Discussion - LOTR board.

Acrylics blended with water. It helps smooth out the color and stuff. I think the size is 12inx16in. (runs to painting and checks) Hey look, I was right.

WOW! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love dark gloomy forests and you really did capture the atmosphere there. I like the colours. Nice painting!

Yo, ho ho, to the bottle I go.
To heal my heart and drwon my woe,
Rain amy falla nd wind may blow,
but there still be many miles to go.
Sweet is the sound of the pouring rain,
And the streamrain or a rippling brook,
is a mug of beer inside this Took!
