A Song of Yavanna by EKukanova A Song of Yavanna by EKukanova
Illustration for Silmarillion by Tolkien, gouache and vatercolours on paper

It's must be a triptych with two trees of Valinor. I hope to finish it someday...

... *speechless*

Honestly, this is AMAZING. No words. Yours are the most believable Ainur I've ever seen. This one looks even more awesome than the one depicting Melian, and that's saying a lot. Apart from the amazing colours, beautiful meadow, wonderful mountain, incredible crown etc.etc., I think the most notable thing of the whole painting is her expression: it really points out her nature of " God's stewardess ", while often drawings portraying the Valar show them as Gods themselves.

Ok, now back to my silent admiration. Keep going! :)

P.s.= can I link this one to the Tolkien Society group on facebook?

Gorgous as usual! I can never get enough of good Vala pics.   I love the colors and the headdress design.                                    Even the flow of her gown suggest life. She truly is the queen of nature.   (Please do Namo someday!)
