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."

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.

Great job with pastels, hunny! You are good with everything! :love: You draw trees to look so pretty... (I'm weird). I like how you have used strong colours like red and blue.
Trees, trees... My sister said I should practise those :? "Look the trees", she said. She also says I should train my shadowing to create shapes (like you have done with those trunks) and she's right, I should. Hehee! My little sis is my art teacher! :aww: (which is nice)
I'm sorry, I just... twaddle with myself :XD:

Thanks Cele <3 I'm flattered :blushes:
I like trees ;P I did this quite fast, it's not as detailed as other pics, but I felt like practising with the pastels again and it was fun...
Your sis seems a nice teacher :D

She is =D
...Except when she teases me by saying: "That's a girl, isn't it?" :XD: Like she wouldn't know I can draw breasts if I wanted. But she always does that, I'm used to it.
She always wants to see my drawings anyway :aww: But when they are too sexy for her she goes totally speechless :lmao: like: "Oh my god, sis! What have you done?!" And I just smile at her. Hahaha! :XD:

Oh, we are going to summer cottage for a week, starting tomorrow, so I won't be able to use computer. Then I must start inking you present!! Bai bai! :wave:
