The Long Winter (Speedpainting 11) by woutart The Long Winter (Speedpainting 11) by woutart
Hunters coming home.

Based on my idea of Tolkien's Northmen, the ancestors of the famed Rohirrim, and their daily life in winter. An image that sprang to mind when walking through the snow these past few weeks. It's hell in traffic, but it gives reality a 'fantastic' quality.

Enjoy!

Hi, ik gebruik een Wacom Intuos 3, A5 (wide). Heel fijne tablet. Zou graag de Intuos 4 eens proberen, maar ja, die is duur en de 3 werkt nog prima.

Dus die samen met Photoshop.

Veel plezier met je nieuwe aanwinst!

This picture really has a great mood to it, probably because I absolutely love northern cultures and snowcovered landscapes :D Fantastic work!

Definitely is!! Nothing like reaching home, especially with snow being a relatively minimal danger compared to everything else in such a time and place.

One of the best sceneries you have painted, no kidding. Colouring, architecture, characters and general atmospehere... This looks so real. Like usual, painting of environment is your stongest point (I really like those trees and bushes, and hills far away). Ah, and this snow. Beautiful indeed. I simply can't praise this scenery enough!

Off topic: here where I live that amount of snow is very usual. Can't hate it, can't love it. Judging from your painting, clearing a 2 meters wide area around that house would require a bit more than 3 days of shoveling, if the bottom part is frozen (like it usually is). Sweet memories.

Thanks J! True, compared to where you live the Dutch winters are 'peanuts'. Three days of shovelling, ouch. Ah well,nothing better to do in winter anyways :D

Cheers buddy!

The Northmen weren't just the ancestors of the Rohirrim. They were also the ancestors
of the men of Dale and Laketown, and of the Woodsmen of Mirkwood.

I like all the snow. :) I've always liked snow as long as it does'nt mess up the roads and cause power failures! :)
