The Forest Before Isengard by peet
The Forest Before Isengard
'The Riders came to the wood, and they halted; horse and man, they were unwilling to pass in. The trees were grey and menacing, and a shadow or a mist was about them. The ends of their long sweeping boughs hung down like searching fingers, their roots stood up from the ground like the limbs of strange monsters, and dark caverns opened beneath them. But Gandalf went forward, leading the company, and where the road from the Hornburg met the trees they saw now an opening like an arched gate under mighty boughs; and through it Gandalf passed, and they followed him. Then to their amazement they found that the road ran on, and the Deeping-stream beside it; and the sky was open above and full of golden light. But on either side the great aisles of the wood were already wrapped in dusk, stretching away into impenetrable shadows; and there they heard the creaking and groaning of boughs, and far cries, and a rumour of wordless voices, murmuring angrily. No Orc or other living creature could be seen.'

JRR Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Book III,  Chapter 8: The Road to Isengard

Watercolour. A deliberately impressionistic work delivered at a fast pace.

Come With Me! by peet
Come With Me!

'At the hill's foot Frodo found Aragorn, standing still and silent as a tree; but in his hand was a small golden bloom of elanor, and a light was in his eyes. He was wrapped in some fair memory: and as Frodo looked at him he knew that he beheld things as they once had been in this same place. For the grim years were removed from the face of Aragorn, and he seemed clothed in white, a young lord tall and fair; and he spoke words in the Elvish tongue to one whom Frodo could not see. 'Arwen vanimelda, nambril!' he said, and then he drew a breath, and returning out of his thought he looked at Frodo and smiled.
'Here is the heart of Elvendom on earth,' he said, 'and here my heart dwells ever, unless there be a light beyond the dark roads that we still must tread, you and I. Come with me!' And taking Frodo's hand in his, he left the hill of Cerin Amroth and came there never again as living man.'

Gwindor's Charge by peet
Gwindor's Charge
'Then the Captain of Morgoth sent out riders with tokens of parley, and they rode up before the outworks of the Barad Eithel. With them they brought Gelmir son of Guilin, that lord of Nargothrond whom they had captured in the Bragollach; and they had blinded him. Then the heralds of Angband showed him forth, crying: 'We have many more such at home, but you must make haste if you would find them; for we shall deal with them all when we return even so.' And they hewed off Gelmir's hands and feet, and his head last, within sight of the Elves, and left him.
    By ill chance, at that place in the outworks stood Gwindor of Nargothrond, the brother of Gelmir. Now his wrath was kindled to madness, and he leapt forth on horseback, and many riders with him; and they pursued the heralds and slew them, and drove on deep into the main host.'

The final illustration requested and under consideration by Warner Bros to appear in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 3D Extended Edition DVD & Blu-ray box-set, in a 'Making of ...' documentary to be released in Autumn-Winter 2015. I was asked to create an image of Elves looking 'fierce' in battle, and to base it roughly on the template established in one of my older paintings The Ride of the Rohirrim.

Painted in watercolour, with a hint of white gouache. Check out the line-work for this piece by clicking on the following:

Gwindor's Charge [Line Work] by peet
Gwindor's Charge [Line Work]
A work-in-progress of the final illustration requested and under consideration by Warner Bros to appear in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 3D Extended Edition DVD & Blu-ray box-set, in a 'Making of ...' documentary to be released in Autumn-Winter 2015.

I was asked to create an image of Elves looking 'fierce' in battle, and to base it roughly on the template established in one of my older paintings The Ride of the Rohirrim. Accordingly, I decided to go with Gwindor's foolish charge on Angband which effectively began the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, or Battle of Unnumbered Tears, and ended in the utter ruin of the Noldor (and the Free Peoples of Beleriand more generally) as a force capable of enclosing - let alone defeating - the armies of Morgoth in the North.

I don't ordinarily submit line works of my paintings, however I felt this looked nice enough as a stand alone piece to warrant an appearance, and that a glimpse at the evolution of one of my works might interest some people. See the finished painting by clicking on the following link:

The Request of Thingol by peet
The Request of Thingol
'At that very time great craftsmen of Nogrod were lately come into Doriath; and the King therefore summoning them declared his desire, that if their skill were great enough they should remake the Nauglamír, and in it set the Silmaril. Then the Dwarves looked upon the work of their fathers, and they beheld with wonder the shining jewel of Fëanor; and they were filled with a great lust to possess them, and carry them off to their far homes in the mountains. But they dissembled their mind, and consented to the task.'
