    Hello! I found this web site of yours from Tolkien Books and find it amazing for the content.
    The art work is very fine and easy to see the strokes and painting in the work.
    I started reading Tolkien and viewing art in the 1980’s and going back for art to the 1965.period.
    I have been looking at the own sketch, which helps to see the animal’s feathers and beak positions.
    Since I create (voluntary) exhibits for the local public library, I use ideas from stories to recreate sculptures
    be it human or animal into a picture or scene. The latest is Edward Lear’s OLD MAN WITH A BEARD.
    The idea came to me during the summer when talking to the library tech’s granddaughter about nonsense
    characters in books in the 398 and 800’s. The child was perspicacious and pulled books from several
    shelves. She loved animals…
    I am having trouble painting the sculptured owls since the feathers are many and different colors. The old
    man in the rhyme is my husband that I created with aluminum and clay. But the animals colors are difficult.
    So after looking at your sketch, somehow it helps me perceive more of the different curves and lines in the
    feathers. Thanks! I do not make any money and give everything I create away to children, adults or the library.
    Your work is gorgeous. Mrs. ATK
