It's been a little while since I posted - work and Birthdays got in the way a bit!
I'm 1/3rd of the way through a painting of King Thranduil, the King of the Woodland realm, from the Hobbit.
I've also started my interpretation of the Mirrormere, the lake beyond Moria that reflects stars even at mid-day.

Next up - Gandalf
Seeing how much better than expected my last portrait turned out, I've now started to paint one of Gandalf. It's going a bit easier now I've had a bit of practice with skin tones and eyes, so might get it finished by the weekend.
The last time I tried to paint a person I was in school, and the portrait ended up looking pretty freaky, so I'm really happy that I can paint people that look like people - with a lot of work and patience!
