blue pencil and white chalk on toned paper, 11" x 14"
"The leaves were long, the grass was green,
The hemlock-umbels tall and fair,
And in a glade a light was seen
Of stars in shadow shimmering.
Tinuviel was dancing there
To music and pipe unseen,
And light of stars was in her hair,
And in her raiment glimmering"
These are two studies for a painting I plan to do, hopefully sooner than later. The watercolor sketch below is from few years ago, and the sketch above I did this past November. It's one of those back burner pieces that I mentioned in the last post, but it's not a commissioned piece. I have a number of projects like this, that I'll revisit from time to time, as new inspirations and ideas present themselves. I'm thinking the eventual painting could be one half of a diptych with a portrait of Beren as its companion piece.
