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, leading to an expert-level game of hide and seek. The idea coincided with a *need* to paint another English landscape (inspired by the glorious Aira Force in the Lake District), and this is the result.
