Tolkien Elves 1

Recently, I have been re-reading Tolkien's, The Silmarillion, and have felt inspired to illustrate some of my favorite scenes from the book. Here is a painting I just finished and some of the process.  The most interesting part for me was the use of watercolor as a base. I used the salt technique to give me a great texture for the stars. A lot of fun. Enjoy.
