A pair of paintings

On a trip outside the Light of the Trees (maybe outside the Pelori near Alqualonde?) Maglor and little Caranthir are playing a game by the fire, while Maedhros, Fingon, Celegorm, Huan, Turgon and Finrod are out riding on the hill.

I painted this as two paintings, not sure if both of them would actually work, but I'm quite pleased with them: I think they do work together as a whole.
(second version with notes about photography below.)


I tried photographing this in natural light (above) and with daylight bulbs (below).  The natural light was evening light and it has left the firelight looking a little colder than the warmer firelight seen in the light of the daylight bulbs, but the artificial lighting was less kind to the starry sky, so I ultimately decided to go with the natural light.
