Als ich vor über 10 Jahren zum ersten mal durch DA zappte, warst du die erste, bei der ich hängen blieb! Nun hab ich mich aufgerappelt, endlich auch einen Account gemacht und kann dir endlich mal sagen wie wundervoll und ergreifend ich deine Bilder finde! Nach 10 Jahren hänge ich also immernoch bei dir rum und werde es auch ewig weiter! Heart 

Ich wünsche dir frohe Weihnachten! Hier für dich: Mein Weihnachts-Teddy-Knuddler Tight Hug

You've disabled comments on your artworks, but I just had to tell you how much I adore your piece 'A Sorrowful Meeting', of Finarfin and Galadriel being reunited! I've been looking for an illustration of them seeing each again for the first time after Galadriel left for Middle-Earth, and I was so happy to find one as beautiful as yours. It's absolutely wonderful, as is all of your art. I'm a big fan of your style!

I'm totally in love with your art.
Your paintings are incredible beautiful and inspiring. The way you use colours and paint details and how you capture the emotions of a scene with that is just breathtaking and makes me want to look through your gallery for the rest of the day.
Thank you for sharing your art :)

Amazing gallery :D

Your gallery is amazing! I enjoyed a lot looking at your work on Tolkien's characters, but your other watercolours are beautiful too ^^
I just read your tutorials, and they motivated me to do a bit of watercolour again. I fell in love with my tablet almost a year ago, but we're adults (at least, I'm pretty sure I am) and I never swore eternal fidelity to her, so it's not like I'm really unfaithful, right? :D

Anyway: keep up the great work!

Hey there! I just recently discovered your deviantart and youtube and your watercolors are just incredible! Your tutorials are also super clear and helpful, it's unbelievable. I was wondering, are there any particular colors that every beginner should have in their palette when beginning with watercolors? At least in your own experience?
Gold-Seven Featured By Owner May 18, 2016  Professional Traditional Artist
Hiya! Thanks for the kind words :) As absolute essentials, I would recommend one red, one blue, one yellow; and Sepia and Indigo to done down bright colours. You can really get by with these. Everything else can be mixed. Keep an eye out for two things: that the colours are light-fast, and transparent. Opaque watercolours can often look caked. 

My preferences for the three primary colours are Ultramarine (a cold, bright blue), Madder Red (a cold, deep red) and Indian Yellow (a bright, warm yellow going into Orange, but if applied with a lot of water, it's pure yellow). Others might recommend a warmer blue (Prussian or Cerulean) or a Cadmium red and yellow, Cadmium red being warmer than Madder. Some artists recommend having both a warm and a cold hue for the primary colours. 

You don't need black (mix it from Sepia and Indigo, maybe with a bit of red to push it towards purple) or white (you just use the white of the paper). 

Paints are fun - you'll find out what your own favourites are! 

Hope this helps!

You've always been a great inspiration to me and  the reason to try getting better and better in watercolours no matter what ♡( and now you're even painting my favourite Kylo Ren xD!) That's why I just thought it'd be nice to drop by and tell you how amazing artist you are and to thank you for everything you're doing <3

I want to use one of your illustrations in a specialized Tolkien article about horses in Middle-Earth. I would like to use your drawing on Fingolfin for the Rochallor section.

You can see the publication here -…

Thank you for your attention.
