Young Queen Painting
This painting's completed - for now anyway. It didn't turn out quite the way I expected. I wanted to use more washes and transparent layers, but my planning wasn't so good and the underpainting was too rough. It's not very big - about 11" by 15". This of course is oil on canvas.
I'm not too crazy about the title. She looks more like a peasant than a queen. Perhaps she's in disguise.
Although it is not meant to be Tolkien's character, this painting was inspired by Éowyn from The Return of The King. You can click on the label below to see the painting in it's various stages.
