Sam and Frodo at the End of All Things. ROTK, LOTR.

This is quite a large painting, as you can probably see from the progress photo in which it’s leaning against a chair.

I think that I didn’t ever finish this one. Must go and drag it out of the shed and complete it at some stage.

The Ring gradually overpowers Frodo, TTT.

Click on this picture of Leaving Lothlorien to open it; then right click and save it to your computer if you’d like to print yourself one copy.

The levels and hue & saturation have been adjusted to suit glossy photo paper, and I think the resolution should be all right for A4 (approximately 20x 25cm/8×11 inches) sized paper. 🙂

Guy of Gisborne Taking off his Armour.

Guy of Gisborne Taking off his Armour. Anne-Louise P. 2009-2My very first foray into digital painting back in May 2009. I scanned my pencil sketch and brought it up in Corel 3, and then used a Wacom tablet and stylus and about a thousand layers to paint it…About 35 or so, anyway. 😉 Armour is so much fun to do in a digital programme.

I have a larger monitor now; it’s much better for doing digital art!

Deeply Cloven Track. LOTR ACEO miniature art card.

Frodo, Sam and Pippin leave Hobbiton in the middle of the night.

This painting is based on a scene from the book of The Fellowship of the Ring, using the appearances of the characters from the film in caricature form.

Moonlight on the Dam: a painting from long ago.

A card painted around Easter time 1989 for my dad’s birthday. He loved Tolkien and Tolkien illustrators – Alan Lee, John Howe, the Hildebrandts, etc.

This picture is nothing to do with The Hobbit or LOTR at all, really. It was inspired by a magical-looking autumnal moon shining on a farm dam out in the South Gippsland countryside, a fox running across a paddock, and a gnome in someone’s garden (now up in Gnome Heaven).

Two versions of Frodo with Bilbo’s Mithril Shirt.

Detail of mithril shirt, version 1. Anne-Louise P. 2007The first version is based on the original mithril shirt scene from Fellowship. The second has a Rivendell exterior landscape in the background, as requested by an American lady in 2007.

I’ve included two detail pictures of Bilbo’s hands holding the shirt because the shirts are quite different. There was no opalescent or iridescent paint used in the silver area: just white, Payne’s grey, blue, green, crimson, and maybe some black as well? I think the gold part of the shirt in the second version did have a touch of actual shimmery gold paint. (It’s been a long time since I last looked at these scans.)

Guy of Gisborne, purple.

One of my favourite scenes from the BBC’s Robin Hood series, 2006. It turned into one of my favourite G of G paintings too. I think he was asking Maid Marian about a scarf he’d given to her.

Carrot flower and spider

Carrots have very pretty umbellate flowers if you don’t pull them up and eat their roots before they bloom. I’m not sure what type of spider this is, but for a few weeks she or he was living in front of the place on my veranda where I like to sit and paint. Lovely markings! Pencil, ink and watercolours on paper.

Sam & Frodo Watch the Elves.

I did this painting of Frodo and Sam back in 2006. They’re watching in awe as the Elves pass through the woods on their way to other lands.
