The Two Trees by montmartre96 The Two Trees by montmartre96
Telperion and Laurelin, the Two Trees of Valinor described in the Silmarillion :-). Technique: oil pastels and pencil.
"The one had leaves of dark green that beneath were as shining silver, and from each of his countless flowers a dew of silver light was ever falling, and the earth beneath was dappled with the shadows of his fluttering leaves. The other bore leaves of a young green like the new-opened beech; their edges were of glittering gold. Flowers swung upon her branches in clusters of yellow flame, formed each to a glowing horn that spilled a golden rain upon the ground; and from the blossom of that tree there came forth warmth and a great light."

Thank you very much for your kind comment and for your interest! I appreciate your offer to credit/link it, but I'd rather have this piece posted only in Deviantart.

Looks wonderful. Also, Telperion is a he and Laurelin is a she, or so I found out. :) That kind of matches what they later became.

This is so lovely! Love the colors, their richness. I never thought that's it's possible to bring together pastels and pencils.
