Another nocturne...



I took the lighing from a photo, but the figures are pretty much from my head.  I do wonder if I'm falling into the trap of 'too small faces' again but at least the figures feel much more fluid and lively.  The camera seems to have accentuated the contrast a bit too much this time, it's a little more subtle in the original.

This is another 'grandchildren of Finwe' painting: from left, Turgon, little Angrod, Finrod, Maglor and various other grandchildren of Finwe dancing in the background. 

This was the last week of nocturnes: next week, much to the disgust of Colin the Art, we are doing Painting Animals. Everyone in the class has got a dog, apart from Colin the art, and they have all decided they want to paint them.  I think Colin the Art thinks of himself as a bit too good for dog portraits, but he did ask what the class would like to paint next, with inevitable results ...  :-D
