Green Hill Country by MatejCadil Green Hill Country by MatejCadil
Green Hill Country was a patch of country in the Shire, marked out by the Green Hills that ran west to east through three of the Shire's four farthings.
The western feet of the Green Hills were in the Westfarthing, in the lands of the Tooks. From Tuckborough, a road ran eastwards through the Green Hill Country, and it was this that Frodo, Sam and Pippin briefly used in their journey from Bag End.
From their beginnings in the Westfarthing, the Hills cut through the northern corner of the Southfarthing, where the village of Pincup lay on their southern slopes. Finally, they passed through the border into the Eastfarthing, where they became densely wooded, and reached their eastern end at the appropriately named Woody End.


oil pastels

I drew this picture originally for a 2011 callendar that I made together with my sister :iconmechor: as a Christmas present for our granparents. This was the picture for October.

This piece is also for sale on my Etsy shop: [link]

If you like my Tolkien-related art, look at my related journal or gallery folder.
But you can find even more of my pictures on my website Angrenost.cz. It's in Czech, but you can still look over the gallery of illustrations. Enjoy! :-)

The leaves are really beautiful! I love the way the colour changes on that top tree.

Such beautiful colors! Really a gorgeous scene.

I love how you did this as an illustration of Shire land. ^^ Tolkien's places were always so beautiful, and you captured it wonderfully.
