The Tale of Beren and Lúthien


It is told that Beren, after the death of his father and kinsmen, journeyed to the elven land of Doriath, where none dared to tread. He came graven of heart, and bowed with many years of woe. Wandering through the summer woods of Neldoreth, at a time of evening, under moonrise, Beren came upon Lúthien  as she danced upon the unfading grass in the glades beside Esgalduin. Then all memory of his pain departed from him, and he fell into an enchantment ; for Lúthien was the most beautiful of all the children of ILuvatar. Blue was her raiment as the unclouded heaven, but her eyes like the starlit evening, and her mantle sewn with golden flowers, but her hair was dark as Shadows of twilight. As the light upon the leaves of trees, as the voices of clear waters, as the stars above the mists of the world, such was her glory and her loveliness... and in her face was a shining light...

Just had Mum, Dad, Marie and Lorraine round for tea and we ended up talking about just how amazingly talented you are, so I showed them this painting. We all spent ages and ages looking at this with delight as we each found something new to look at. Like many of your other pieces of art, this is just stunning and we are ALL very proud of you. Love you bro xxx Hug

I'm completely in love with everything in this picture... its perfect with all the details and colours - and normally I really don't like water colour paintings, I prefer acryl. This is the first painting in this technique ever I'm absolutely in love with. Oh my gosh marry me :D Or just give me your talent

It is honestly so good, the detail in all of your pictures is amazing, I would never have the patience to draw that long.
I wouldn't call it little talent but I would take you and your talent if she doesn't want both anymore ;D

Cheers Denise ... Yes that's a funny thing really, I rubbed away the paint to create a sort of viking wooden mask and as I start to paint the shape of the mask, I could see my face. With a few strokes of the brush it was me ...twilight moment o'err :D
