Oil on canvas, 16″x10″ wide.

Artist Commentary: Smaug is almost always depicted guarding his hoard at the Lonely Mountain. Although I’ve done sketches of Smaug in flight, this is my first attempt to capture him in full colour. This image was first used on the cover ofAmon Hen No. 207 in September, 2007. Amon Hen is the bimonthly journal of the British Tolkien Society, and is ably edited by Andrew Butler.

10″x16″ original oil painting – SOLD!
