Paintober, Day 17 – The Greatest of Calamities

The Hobbit was my favorite book as a child, as well as the first book I picked out from a bookstore (Scholastic Book Club being an entirely different animal). My relationship with the film trilogy is…complicated, but there are parts of it that I unabashedly love.

Also, I’d listen to Thorin read a phone book, but that’s neither here nor there.

I finished my postcard supply yesterday, so I am now working from a series of small artist’s tiles. This one is what I imagine to be a cross-section of Smaug’s skin.

I coated the medium in water, then applied a heavy dose of forest green, yellow ochre, and crimson, with some bright blue for accents.
