A sorrowful meeting

Sorrowful was their meeting in Tasarinan; for Finrod was lost and Angrod too, and never more would Aegnor walk beside Andreth Saelind beneath the green leaves of spring. ~(Paul Leone, the commissioner of this piece) You’ll remember this one of Finarfin being reunited with his daughter Galadriel around the War of Wrath. I redid it […]

The Alps and Metaurus

What’s a Hannibal obsession without a proper crossing-of-the-Alps picture? I have a large one in the works, but this scene begged to be done first. On their ninth day in the Alps, Hannibal hears loss reports over gruel. I’m working my way to the other important people in the story – the one bearing the […]

Workshop Aachen – we put the water in watercolour! (Mainly from above.)

And another weekend with great fun, fantastic creativity, and abysmal weather. Aachen really puts the water back in watercolour. Thanks to all who braved the rain and storm (and bad lighting!) to join us! Kirsten was again so kind to film some painting demos; I’ll upload the vids when I have them! Until then, here’s […]

First Workshop 2013

I’ve held my first of two workshop this weekend, and we’ve had two fantastic days with interesting people, heaps of creativity, loads of fun, and of course gorgeous art! Take a look! I did a demonstration of skin and clothes again, and Hannibal acted as my new demonstration model. It seems that the skin-shading there […]

The Darkening of Valinor

  (I’ll update this post with the finished version and possibly progress shots when I get to it!) This is a commission I took on last November (…!), for a wonderful guy and one of the greatest clients I’ve ever worked with. He wanted a painting of F

Harp lessons

This commission really took me some failed attempts – I couldn’t get two people and a harp to work without reference. It only worked when I grabbed my husband and daughter and had them pose for a few reference shots. My daughter’s cutely contorted feet then made it into the drawing. The harp ought to […]

Fingon and Aredhel – mixed media experiment

I doodled a very nice Fingon and Aredhel into my sketchbook yesterday – with coloured pencil, which yielded some really charming results. I decided to try watercolour on top of those – only to realise that my coloured pencils were water soluble. So I printed the sketches out on watercolour paper again, and got to […]

In the Deepest Wildwood

Remember these two? They started out as a thought experiment (“What if Dior’s sons had been saved and brought up by Ents?”;), but as I never really subscribed to the idea, and as it’s June and Damh the Bard’s song “Noon of the Solstice” is playing right now, this’ll be it. This is the first […]

Epic: Nod

*coughs* It’s been a while since I fell madly in love with a cartoon character. I think the last one was Fireball from Saber Rider. But well, it had to happen again eventually. I couldn’t help it. It was the hair. And golden brown eyes. *cough* Liquid watercolours on Fabriano Artistico Cold-pressed.

Welcome to my life, Quinacridone!

A few people recommended Daniel Smith watercolours to me when I posted my last blog post. I got curious and found a place to order them online in Germany. I got myself Shadow Violet, Quinacridone Deep Gold and Indian Red (which I’d run out of anyway). The owner of the shop very kindly also included [...]

Which watercolours?

An overview over all the different watercolour types and brands I’ve worked with, their advantages and setbacks. Some general notes in advance. If you’re well-versed with the different features of watercolours, just skip this bit. Quality: Watercolours come in two general distinctions: Artists’ quality (Fine Art/K

The harp no longer sings

This is a concept that has occupied me for years, resulting in several pieces already. It’s symbolic rather than illustrative of any given passage in the text – Maglor, a remnant of the Elves in Middle-earth but excluded from his people, caught in a world of his own where music no longer brings consolation, surrounded [...]

The Oath has been awakened – painting

In painting this one, I was facing the challenge to have a lot of reds, even in the sky, and horses – which sometimes leads to dangerously girly-calendary motifs. So far, I seem to have succeeded in not falling over on that side of the fence. I know that because my daughter, a great fan [...]

The Painting of the Sword

… or, how to avoid cluttering up mass scenes. On your second attempt. In this painting, I have such an amount of detail in the lineart that I have to be careful not to kill the picture with it.Let me give you a fun example of how *not* to do it, from exactly ten years [...]
