Galadriel by Veronnikka Galadriel by Veronnikka
My interpretation of Galadriel, the Lady of the Golden Wood.
The little yellow flowers are supposed to be elanor; the design is inspired by gold-seven.deviantart.com/art/…

Character © J.R.R. Tolkien

------------------------------

Watercolor and white ink on Canson paper, 9"*12".

Your watercolor texture is wonderful. I know from experience how hard it is to get paint and paper to do that! :D

It does take practice.:D A good tip is to wet the paper first before applying the basic color, and then dab with paper towel and other tones to create random patterns.

And thank you for showing us your interpretation! Much more interesting to see an artists imagination than a copy from a movie.

Thanks a lot! I'm planning on doing a few more Tolkien-related portraits, and some of the characters have never appeared in any movie. I'd like to keep the series consistent.

I wish I knew what book you were talking about, shame, but this picture is downright AMAZING. Best part about it is that it's traditional- I don't even know how you did it.

It's Lord of the Rings, of course. ;) Thank you very much for you comment! This picture was indeed a lot of work.
