Amon Ereb by peet Amon Ereb by peet

'Between Ramdal and Gelion there stood a single hill of great extent and gentle slopes, but seeming mightier than it was, for it stood alone; and that hill was named Amon Ereb. Upon Amon Ereb died Denethor, lord of the Nandor that dwelt in Ossiriand, who marched to the aid of Thingol against Morgoth in those days when the Orcs first came down in force, and broke the starlit peace of Beleriand; and upon that hill Maedhros dwelt after the great defeat.'

JRR Tolkien: The Silmarillion: Chapter 14: Of Beleriand and its Realms

Great landscape. The dark thunderclouds set an intense mood, a sense of foreboding. Very symbolic for this refuge of doomed people, facing a long inevitable defeat.

Not a bad comparison to make, considering the less than savoury deeds committed by these folk ...

Excellent work! The dark clouds definitely set the mood well. This is very similar to how I imagined this area when I read the book.

You do Tolkien's visions such justice... And a sense of the immense power and tragic doom of the Noldor.

You do your work with a stark honesty of depiction that goes well with the prose.

You're the sort who MIGHT like some of my poetry.

Wonderful landscape. The thundercloud weighing above the castle is such a good touch, as if foreshadowing the fate of this place and its lord(s). I always like your landscape art. It is very atmospheric and full of meanings.

Thanks for the kind words as ever, my friend - I hope you're doing well :) Yeh the storm cloud just kind of came first with the earliest washes (darkened later of course), and I just think it seemed to work for this location for some reason. It's harmless enough climatically., but I love fitting in the symbolism wherever I can! ;)

Yeah, I am doing pretty well these days. Thank you for asking.

The same here. I love symbolism too, it gives so much more meanings to a picture.
