Of Thingol and Melian by peet Of Thingol and Melian by peet
'He forgot then utterly all his folk and all the purposes of his mind, and following the birds under the shadows of the trees he passed deep into Nan Elmoth and was lost. But he came at last upon a glade under the stars, and there Melian stood; and out of the darkness he beheld her with hands outstretched, and the light of Aman was in her face.
No word she spoke but being filled with love Elwe came to her and took her hand; and straightaway a spell was laid on him, so that they stood thus, hand in hand, while long years were measured by the wheeling stars above them; and the trees of Nan Elmoth grew tall and dark ere they spoke any word to one another.'

JRR Tolkien: The Silmarillion: Chapter 4: Of Thingol and Melian

This work is in my folder called Tolkien five years, but who drew was unknown, I'm glad I can see the whole gallery of the excellent work that I was inspired when they also tried to draw a bird in the corner such a nice detail ..

Ah, really? You've had this all this time? Well I'm very glad you've finally found me :-) Yes, that's one of Melian's nightingales; I think it's cute. Many thanks!

Indeed, this is one of her less colourful nightingales, but a nightingale nonetheless. They can't all be wonderful and exotic ;)

It is absolutely magical nightingale) it is immediately obvious nightingale Melian, in nature, they are small and greyish, and not immediately make out) I love telling detail is one of them, drew the attention)
