Eastward by Brunild Eastward by Brunild
This painting is inspired to Black Silmarillion (the Silmarillion by Niennah and Illet, that ritell the story from perspective of the dark side).
After his last good bye to Melkor, Sauron go to East..

"Ele ia para o Leste, levando o Livro e a espada.
Ele dizia alguma coisa, sem se ouvir, sem lembrar das palavras. Obedeciam -lhe. Ele guiava os homens- seguia en frente sem ver nada a sua volta.
Esquecimento.
Somente-acima de tudo isso-ordem-s¨plica: "Vao embora. Vao embora!.." (O Livro Negro de Arda-Black Book of Arda) (Original characters by J.R.R. Tolkien)

Very beautiful work! The way you use here shadow and different shades of brown reminds me of Rembrandt's works. :)
Is the owl there for some specific reason (symbol of wisdom..?)? I haven't read Black Silmarillion as there is no translation of it to English, but is Sauron carrying The Black Book of Arda here?

Thank you! I am honored for such a comparison. Usually I paint using only three or four colors, sometimes only two colors: the burnt umber and white. In this book are mentioned owls as a symbol of wisdom, but in this case I wanted to add a barn owl as a symbol of mine, because I'm very attached to these animals. Yes, Sauron is bringing with him the Black Book of Arda in this scene. I'm glad you've appreciated it! :heart: and thanks for the fav also!
