'To the west of Thangorodrim lay Hisilómë, the Land of Mist, for so it was named by the Noldor in their own tongue because of the clouds that Morgoth sent thither during their first encampment; Hithlum it became in the tongue of the Sindar that dwelt in those regions. It was a fair land while the Siege of Angband lasted, although its air was cool and winter there was cold. In the west it was bounded by Ered Lómin, the Echoing Mountains that marched near the sea; and in the east and south by the great curve of Ered Wethrin, the Shadowy Mountains, that looked across Ard-galen and the Vale of Sirion.'

What a compliment, thanks! I have so little time for painting at the moment but I can wait to delve back into Arda again someday!

Beautiful, as always. I'm mostly captured by that lovely play of light and shadow down on the hills at the bottom. That tiny slice is wonderful to look at in itself.

Aw, thanks for the really kind comment. I was so pleased how this turned out, the first piece on new paper that I now love. It's really nice, then, to read that others enjoy it too! Cheers :beer:

Thank you kindly - this is the first (and thus far only) piece on my new favourite watercolour paper ;) I really adore how it soaks and controls the water!
