Leaving Lothlorien, Fellowship of the Ring.

Leaving Lothlorien. Acrylic paints on 35cm x 65cm (approx) stretched canvas, 2006.

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. 🙂

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.)

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.
