Finrod dreaming by Gold-Seven Finrod dreaming by Gold-Seven
Finrod Felagund lying by the waters of Sirion, dreaming of great halls of stone...

Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Once again, no proper background. Erf. And once again, my hubby did some posing to get the angle right. He's getting really good at portraying sleeping or dead Elves...

I wouldn't care about background, it's appropriate for the dream as you have it :-)

This is beautiful. And thank you for helping me see the uses of watercolor in fantasy art. It has helped encourage me to try it myself. I haven't got any of them up here, yet, though.

This is really beautiful. I'm not too familiar with all the characters of Tolkien, but in your gallery I keep going back to this picture. Great work!

Once again, you have done an amazing job. ;) Such a beautiful elf and such a beautiful job with the watercolors. (I can't do watercolor to save my life!) There's just one >small< thing I found amiss here... Finrod's eyes are closed, when ELVES ACTUALLY SLEEP WITH THEIR EYES OPEN! However, I guess elves need to blink even when they are asleep, so let's just say you painted him as he blinked in his sleep... ;)

They look weird with the eyes open in any case, which is why I decided to depict him with his eyes closed. ;)
