Encounter of Beren and Luthien by EKukanova Encounter of Beren and Luthien by EKukanova
The leaves was long, the grass was green,
The hemlock-umbels tall and fair,
And in the glade a light was seen
Of stars in shadow shimmering.
Tinuviel was dancing there
To music of a pipe unseen,
And light of stars was in her hair,
And in her raiment glimmering...

Beren and Luthien

Lovely! Almost as I saw it when I first read the Silmarillion back in 1977.

Ах, какой болиголов, и крышеснос - мир, кажется, весь уносит куда-то. Здоровско.

I wish art wasn't such a time consuming think because I love seeing your new piecess come up on my screen all the time. but then if it didn't such devotion and time it wouldnw't be worth it. Amazing job!

I love how you made Beren look almost like part of the forest, which, after almost a year enchanted, is probably not far from the truth! The light on the leaves and on Lúthien and on the flowers makes a wonderful contrast, as does the sense of motion! It's almost not clear whether Beren has already awoken from his enchantment or whether he is still petrified. Just lovely!
