tolkienesque landscape (oil on canvas)

Take inspiration from whats all ready there

One of the main things I always try to incorporate into Tolkien/fantasy inspired art is the everyday. Where ever possible I take inspiration from the surrounding landscape, in this case the village of Zahara a short drive from Olvera my home town. This painting could easily be transformed into the extraordinary, simply by changing the sheep in the foreground into hobbits, knights, elves or whatever takes your fancy.
