    Arwen's Song

    With a sigh you turn away
    With a deepening heart
    No more words to say
    You will find that the world
    Has changed forever

    And the trees are now turning
    From green to gold
    And the sun is now fading
    I wish I could hold you closer

    Amazing portrait. Really captures her likeness, yet you do it in a very streamlined way which makes it more graphic in treatment. Yet it completely looks dimensional. It's as if you removed all the non-essentials yet nailed the likeness and dimensionality in a soft elegant way that is like a beginning to a fully rendered portrait or really complete sketch. Sometimes an artist doesn't know when to stop a painting. When I am not limited by a client's expectations I am freer to stop a painting at the stage where it breathes life. I think this one was stopped at such a moment and as a result it feels supple and alive and honest, as if describing someone perfectly and essentially and succinctly.

    Very impressive. Love the colors as well.

    Go Pai!

    Hi Dakey, yes, it's the first time i used watercolor on portrait and i found Arwen (Liv Tyler) kinda of suitable for applying that media. strange though. i also just love the way she looks like that. thinking her beauty in the story is so purity white feeling. i don't want to put more oil paint on this portrait of her. somehow i would think i would carelessly cover her mythical elf beauty look. thanks so much for the nice comments.

    yes, Sandy, i really like her to portray Arwen's. I think it's appropriate. the one scenery i like in the series is when Arwen brings Frodo to her father to rescue him and she drawn her sword and protected Frodo from the Ringwraith. And then she summoned the elf spells to drawn the sea horses. That cinematic scene I like a lot. Thanks for your nice words

    thanks Katie, you're always so nice comments
