Turin and Lalaith by alarie-tano Turin and Lalaith by alarie-tano
Aquarelle, 16 x 89,3 cm,
©2007 Simon Schmidt


Small Turin and his little first-born sister Lalaith, shortly before her death playing on the lawns of Dor-Lómin.

This format was quite a challenge. I painted parts of it from the side because from the bottom I would not have reached them.

What a gorgeous view! It's the most stunning depiction of Beleriand I've ever seen.

this is such an interesting composition! I love the bands of pure white dividing the picture into pieces.

Thank you very much! :) Glad you recognized the bands. They were meant to lead you to the main action if you follow them zig-zagging down from the top :)

Wow--this is so unique! I don't think I've often seen a painting done like this! And I love your depiction of Turin and Lalaith--Turin's being my favorite of the lays of Beleriand.

In this painting? Not so long. But there are others where it really takes a looong time. Up to a day or two. Especially as I am often malcontent with the result and overpaint it again :P

Das Dorf und den Wald finde ich farblich nicht so schön (das Dorf ist so blass und der Grünton des Waldes gefällt mir nicht so), aber der Rest ist wieder super.

Ja das Dorf follte eigentlich wegen der Luftperspektive etwas blasser erscheinen. aber nachdem der restliche Hintergrund wieder dunkler ist is das etwas schief gegangen :D

I like it, but it's too sad for me. My favourite is Eärendil :)

Wow, the lanscape looks very paceful and the familiar play between Turin and Lalaith is so cute...I think the mood is very appropriate to Tolkien's story. You're a wonderful artist ;) I like the "Silmarillion" too, but my favourite story was the one about Tuor, Maeglin and Idriel in Gondolin...

Thanks very much. Tuoars story is beautiful as well, but the one i can relate to the most is Turin's. Just finished another painting with him, will upload it soon.

Wunderschön und sehr beeindruckend. Wow. Yep. Straight to my favourites, that one. Du solltest mehr Silmarillion-Illustrationen machen, dein Stil passt perfekt. :)
