Hobbit Illumination - Thorin Oakenshield

Hobbit ‘Illuminations’:
with European medieval illuminations and bookplates as an inspiration,
this was an experiment to create illustrations that
 might look like they came from the books of Middle-earth itself.

16 x 24 cms, very mixed media on heavyweight, coldpress watercolour paper,
finished with oil paints.
