Gondolin by Atriedes Gondolin by Atriedes
Watercolour on 300gsm hot pressed

My take on Tolkien's hidden city, REALLY big eagles and all.

you have a beautiful way with watercolor. this piece reminds me alot of tolkien's own illustrations, the way the mountains swoop up to those needle noses, and would I be right in guessing that the composition and pose of the front eagle was inspired in part by his painting of bilbo up in the eagles eyrie [link]? your a significant step or two ahead of tolkien though, as a painter. Masterful work.

Those Eagles are awesome. Would be cool if they made the Silmarillion into a movie.
