This is absolutely beautiful. Those colors - that lighting - there's something silken about the snow, and yet you practically feel the cold. Amazing work!

Love that lighting on the mountains in the background. The temperature shift is really stunning. Your textures in the ice/icicles on the left are really interesting.

I can't tell you how much I love this painting. I had the chance to see it in person at a fantasy art convention and I can say that it's even more monumental when it's sitting there in front of you. One of the truly iconic Tolkien images.
