A sorrowful meeting by Gold-Seven A sorrowful meeting by Gold-Seven
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 may remember this piece, of Finarfin being reunited with his daughter Galadriel around the War of Wrath. I redid it as a commission – as you know, the old version was coffee, and it wouldn’t be a good idea to hang it on a wall! :)

Daniel Smith and Schmincke watercolours on Canson Montval; A3 size.

 It's hard to feel anything but pity for The Lady Galadriel at the loss of her siblings, especially if you believe that she may have played a considerable role in persuading them to follow her in defiance of their father's wishes; no wonder she prefers to emulate Melian in her old age!

Elves--enough joy to lighten a night sky, enough sadness to darken the sun.  I was looking at a star-filled sky last night and thinking of the First Age... I wish Galadriel had left her autobiography before she sailed into the West.  Your image is beautiful, brilliantly colored, and very prfound.

Der Baum ist der absolute Hammer. Er wirkt, als wäre er aus Metall und nicht aus organischem Material.
... und mit Deiner ausgefeilten Maskier-Strategie hast Du es geschafft, den Zweigen eine gewisse Dreidimensionalität zu verleihen.
Beim Hintergrund hatte wahrscheinlich wieder Daniel Smith seine Finger im Spiel ;-)

Blauuu! Der Hintergrund ist wunderschön, tolle Farbe. Auch die traurig von dem totenweißen Baum herabhängenden Blätter sind überaus stimmungsvoll. Immer noch so rührend wie das Kaffeeoriginal, wenn nicht sogar mehr ;).
Aber die Zweigen weichen respektvoll Galadriels Haaren aus, oder? :P
