"In Defense of Minas Tirith"
24 X 30 (acrylic)

This is the product of my summer fishing trip described in an earlier post - Gone Fishing. This painting was commissioned by my son. It was inspired by a scene from the movie Lord of The Rings: Return of the King. The original image is found on the official web site. I truly enjoyed this project. The architectural detail and the play of light and shadow was at the same time challenging and satisfying. I was particularly happy with the way the stormy skies came out. I hope you enjoy it.
