But if of ships I now should sing, what ship would come to me?
What ship would ever bear me back across so wide a Sea?"
after the Lament of Galadriel, from The Fellowship of the Ring.
When you really get into the Silmarillion and all, the sorrow of the Elves is just gutting. And as far as I'm concerned Saruman deserved his unpleasant death (I'm speaking bookverse here!) if only for mocking Galadriel about that.
Another watercolour rather-quickie instead of doing my animation assignment. (And I have paid for wasting that time...)
