Hide and seek

This painting resulted from reading about Aragorn’s tortuous journey with Gollum to the Elves, and wondering what would happen if Gollum tried to sneak away – surely the ultimate game of hide and seek? The idea coincided with a *need* to paint another English landscape, and this is the result!

Landscape inspired by the glorious Aira Force in the Lake District.
Very mixed media: acrylics, acrylic ink, pastel, chalk, pencil, charcoal, gouache, and possibly a third of a jaffa cake (I never did find it) on paper, 21x29cms.
