Sights of the Shire Part Five - Beyond the North Farthing
From J.R.R Tolkien's 'The Lord of the Rings'

Thought Id show off my latest pen and ink illustration showing the most Northern boundary of the Shire. It was known for having a slightly cooler climate then the rest of the Shire, and snow was more common there. The soil tended to be somewhat rocky but was good enough to farm and was where the Shire's barley for their beer came from. It was also the location of the Battle of the Greenfields.

Really enjoyed doing this one, especially trying to capture the composition of the white, patchwork farmlands and the darker, wilder hills beyond. Creating the clouds through the use of pointillism was very time consuming but I think worth it in the end :)

Lovely and very detailed composition! I like the fact you depict rarely seen locations among Tolkien's fan art.
