Escape from Hirilorn by Maitia Escape from Hirilorn by Maitia
It's that time of year again where I attempt to paint Lúthien. This time, she's growing her hair for her escape from Hírilorn.
It was drawn mainly at work (and so took ages), but I'm so pleased, because this new hot-pressed watercolour paper is so good! It doesn't bulge out, and it's wonderfully smooth! Huzzah!

Anyway, Lúthien Tinúviel is from The Silmarillion and thus ©JRR Tolkien.

This is lovely :) I think the pale, ephemeral air to this painting really captures the feel of the Lay of Leithien.

Thank you so much for your kind words. :D
The Lay of Leithian is probably my favourite part of the Silmarillion, which is why I draw it so much. Or, you know, scenes from it.
