In pain and regret by Gold-Seven In pain and regret by Gold-Seven
:deviation: Print available here! [link]


"And it is told of Maglor that he could not endure the pain with which the Silmaril tormented him; and he cast it at last into the Sea, and thereafter he wandered ever upon the shores, singing in pain and regret beside the waves. For Maglor was mighty among the singers of old, named only after Daeron of Doriath; but he came never back among the people of the Elves."

(The Silmarillion, chapter 24, Of the Voyage of Eärendil and the War of Wrath, by J. R. R. Tolkien)

The fate of the last surviving son of Fëanor. If you can call such an existence survival.

Sort of a companion piece to this one.
So each of them meets their end - one a quick, fiery, dramatic death, one a long, cold, sad suffering.

Liquid watercolours (Rohrer & Klingner and Docmartins) on Canson Montval paper.

Fun fact: Among others, this one has been added to the collections "Random girls", "Women", and "Foxes".
Hint: If descriptions aren't your thing, at least check for boobs. :giggle:

Beautiful work, Jenny!  Love the waves and all the...coral? on the rocks.  Lovely tunic, too.  :heart:

I haven't read the Silmarillion, but these are absolutely beautiful and stunningly emotional. I love the color schemes and the contrast between the two; I love the details and the texture and everything about them!
