Diptych: Beren by Gold-Seven Diptych: Beren by Gold-Seven
Finally Done!

One half of a commission for Becky Dillon. Lúthien:

From The Silmarillion by J. R. R. Tolkien.

Note: The tartan cloth is not exclusively Scottish. It was worn by many peoples on the British isles, Germanic and Celtic alike, and I chose that look to denote a rather less civilised look of Men in the First Age.

Please "like" my Facebook page if you like my work! :) [link]

My blog: [link] (I have a print sale running until tomorrow! Hurry if you want a print at 20% off!)

Prints of this - and its companion piece - will be available soon.

Liquid watercolours on Canson Montval paper, 30x50 cm.

I love this pair, the way they both look beautiful but you can feel the difference between them how he's rough and homespun and kind of sad, like he knows she's too good for him, and she's soft and elegant and ethereal, and a little sad too, because she knows he'll bring rejection.  Or maybe she senses what's to come.  :/

He looks like a hero should, while remaining a man (hope that makes sense).

I think the more primitive clothing is very appropriate for the person and setting. Good call.

Well, I am the author of the novel mentioned below, and I was very much loathed by Russian Tolkien fandom puritans for making Beoreans wear tartan.

Now I see I am not alone! Whoopee!
