Galadriel, Lady of the Golden Wood. Commission.
Every time I think of Galadriel, I think of the song she sings as the Fellowship leaves Lórien:
"O Lórien! Too long have I dwelt upon this hither shore
and in a fading crown have twined the golden elanor.
But if of ships I now should sing, what ship would come to me?
What ship would bear me ever back across to wide a sea?"
Such a beautiful song to portray a dwindling people.
Schmincke watercolours on Montval cold-pressed paper, A3 size. I recently bought a couple of Arthur Rackham artbooks... I think it's working already. God, I adore that man's style.
