Lothlorien by ullakko Lothlorien by ullakko
Cerin Amroth of Lothlórien in Lord of the Rings...

“The others cast themselves down upon the fragrant grass, but Frodo stood awhile still lost in wonder. It seemed to him that he had stepped through a high window that looked on a vanished world. A light was upon it for which his language had no name. All that he saw was shapely, but the shapes seemed at once clear cut, as if they had been first conceived and drawn at the uncovering of his eyes, and ancient as if they had endured for ever. He saw no colour but those he knew, gold and white and blue and green, but they were fresh and poignant, as if he had at that moment first perceived them and made for them names new and wonderful. In winter here no heart could mourn for summer or for spring. No blemish or sickness or deformity could be seen in anything that grew upon the earth. On the land of Lórien, there was no stain.” ― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Done with mixed media: watercolour, pens, coloured pencils, white acrylic, etc.

This is the most accurate rendition I have seen of Lothlorien to how I imagined it when I first read Lord of the Rings. Truly gorgeous!!

I keep coming back to this to look at it again. It's really a beautiful piece that evokes both an awestruck and peaceful mood.

I like the sylised feel of this one - especially the white trees on the center hill - golden leaves and all.
