Through The Shire by Nergling Through The Shire by Nergling

My best painting as it not only captures what I was feeling at the time but is a rarity in that I don't actually own the piece anymore. I sent it on to a good friend as a birthday present. Also it's blue unless you hadn't already noticed, that is pretty strange for my gallery too.

I used watercolours for the background and acrylics for the foreground as they are opaque and you don't need to build up layers to get a rich colour.

This is so good and absolutely my aesthetic!! I love the colour scheme, maybe you should mess around with blue more often?

A cool mixture between the dark of Nazgul(is a Nazgul no?) with a beautiful blue sky and trees. I love it!

I think Bob Ross would be proud to see this if he were still around. Your painting is beautiful and I love the background. ^^

Oh, wow, this looks relly scary. It's good, though! Keep up the great work :D 
I absolutely love how you paced this out, it's a nice, sunny day and a clear blue sky but the forest is dark and full of horrors. Amazing! ♡

Really nice! I like the atmosphere, in one side it's dark and scary but in the other there's some light. Great job :)

Oh, this is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Really, nothing can beat the messy, natural feel of acrylic paint and watercolor. This is just fantastic. The atmosphere is so still and foreboding.
