The harp no longer sings by Gold-Seven The harp no longer sings by Gold-Seven
From J. R. R. Tolkien's Silmarillion, though not a direct scene.

Schmincke watercolours on Canson Montval paper, 29x40 cm.

After casting his Silmaril into the sea, Maglor is left to linger on the Hither Shore - never again coming among his people, caught in a world of his own where music no longer brings consolation, surrounded by the ruins of the former greatness of the Noldor, whose downfall he had a part in.... quite possibly his brother's fortress of Himring, which alone was not swallowed by the sea. :(

Pretty much a re-do of this one. [link]

This is gorgeous. Amazing detail and emotion... :D I love the Silmarillion, I love your artwork... Put the two together, and I'm in heaven! (Or Valinor, rather.)
