The mourning of Uinen by EKukanova The mourning of Uinen by EKukanova
Illustration for Silmarillion by Tolkien

This is the moment when Uinen is going to be covered by a huge wave, as she is revenging the murder of Teleri and going to sink the most of Noldor ships.

Great composition. Uinen looks so calm and controlled but I suspect all hell is going to break loose when she unleashes the power of the sea...

What medium is this? I'm guessing it's acrylic, but I'm not sure. Also what dimensions are the original work?

The movement of the water is great. I like the colors as well, and how her hair and the birds have a similar flowing quality. Beautifully done!

I'd be totally glad if my works could be included in Tolkien's books. I've been offering my illustrations to a couple of British publishers and I think of offering them to Russian and American publishers this year.

Написала, посмотрела, подумала: -не слишком ли лирично?  не сделать ли 2-ю версию с бордовым морем и Уинен, как королева Марго (на афише фильма с Аджани)?    Хотя... по-моему, красоты слишком много не бывает, нас окружает слишком много некрасивых вещей, историй и прочего, и прочего, чтобы бояться перестараться с количеством красивого)))
 И я бы рада всё выкладывать хоть в оригинальном разрешении, да приходилось уже иметь дело с  нарушителями авторских прав :(

ММ, афишу не помню, а фильм когда-то был одним из любимых)
бордовое море это должно быть интересно и по цвету и по тону, но вызывает какие-то винные ассоциации)
Да, красоты слишком не бывает,а в наше время так вообще дефицит, вокруг-то не сады Лориена(
в нашей стране с авторскими правами вообще туго..это на тему защиты интеллектуальной собственности..

Просто мне вспомнились наши преподаватели, отчаянно боровшиеся с излишками красоты; -меня они не перебороли))) 

И наверно я имела ввиду всё-таки обложку видеокассеты: там королева Марго в белом платье, запятнанном кровью, в ужасе смотрит куда-то вниз (видимо на горы трупов), прижав руки к лицу.
Море крови как-то видела на фотографии, это было что-то китобойное или вроде того.  Ярко освещённые солнцем лодки в тёмно-красной, почти чёрной воде на фоне свинцового неба. Смотрелось слегка апокалиптично, хотя с колористической точки зрения- интересно. 
 Проблема состоит в том, что на всём протяжении времени  написания подобной картины я буду пребывать в депрессии, да и потом на стену это не повесишь)

Да, мрачновато, это должно быть определенное настроение, а если его нет, не стоит создавать его искуственно, поменьше ангста, одним словом, кровавые моря это больше к вампирской тематике)))
и если уж быть бордовому морю, пусть это будет море выпивки)))море Мерло или море Каберне)чем не тема...
преподаватели борющиеся с красотой это печально(...(
А Аджани хороша...

Oh my word....

I absolutely love the way you have captured the look on her face, and even in her hand as she touches the foaming sea.  Incredible sorrow in her eyes, but determination of flint and steel in the set of her jaw, gathering the wind and the foam around her.  Really like the way you have used the red crown, and the way it flows down her arm and hair into the water, the blood red of revenge.

Beautiful painting....
