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 […]

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 […]

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

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 […]

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 [...]

Grand Old English Wash Brush or: Painting of Maglor

If you read my last post about art slumps, you already know that this piece gave me a lot of grief. Part of the reason was that the colours insisted on caking up. Even the royal blue that comes out pretty transparent. On any kind of paper and with any kind of brush, I found [...]

Ancalagon – painting

I’m pretty happy with how Ancalagon turned out here. Here’s how I did him: For his look, I browsed the web for good closeups of… lizards. There’s an awful lot of great lizards out there – horned lizard, dragon lizard, and armadillo lizard were just a few I looked at in order to make the [...]

There will be blood – painting

Run, little Orcses, run. I’m proud to announce that I have found the paper/paint combo that I will stick with to the end of days. Doc Martin’s liquid watercolours – no surprises there – and Canson Montval. The Canson students’ paper is good, but tends to cake up under too many layers of paint, and [...]

Ossiriand – painting

I finally found the time to paint “Ossiriand”. The result surprised me, quite frankly. I chose Dr Martin’s Liquid Watercolours and Canson paper to work on, as I wanted to pic bright – turns out that the result was almost too bright. Hence, I turned down the saturation a little in the final painting; that’s [...]

All the others, gone

A missing moment that I hadn’t even seen until now – we all know that Finarfin came briefly to Beleriand to lead the Noldor of Valinor into battle against Morgoth in the War of Wrath. Has it ever occurred to anyone how painful it must have been to finally be reunited with his daughter – [...]

It ends in flame – progress

That other picture I had lying is taking shape: The final moment of Maedhros. First, as this seems to have become the thing to do, I’ll share the 1995 version. Yes, I was prolific in 1995. Note Maedhros’ clothes. I can only surmise that this is what I understood by “they disguised themselves” – he [...]

The Oath of F

As always, my lineart is drawn in pencil on Bristol board, scanned, and printed out on watercolour paper. (For any questions on that process, see my FAQ above!) This one proved to be the toughest watercolour I’ve ever done. I actually did a watercolour thumbnail before painting, trying to work out how much paint to [...]

Sealing Maedhros’ fate – walkthrough

I’ve split the previous post, so that it now contains only the thoughts about the picture. Now here’s the creation process for the image “Sealing Maedhros’ fate”. The sketch was made in Photoshop. I like sketching digitally; it allows me to move around people or groups of people, flip images to check the averse effect, [...]

Those missing moments

I’m re-reading the Silmarillion again (for the first time in fifteen years, cover to cover) and find myself delightfully stumbling over those little scenes in between that aren’t there – and yet are. One of the reasons why I can’t listen to the audiobook. I want to pause it after every other sentence, to give [...]
