I loved harry potter and the lord of the rings growing up (books and films of course!), and was very excited about jazza studios challenge of the month. I wanted to create an epic battle between Balrog and Harry Potter riding Buckbeak because I love mythical creatures and magic and thought it would be interesting to see who would win. I do tend to love the baddies and I think I'm secretly rooting for Balrog! I choose a nighttime setting to really make the colours stand out and Im very pleased with the result. I used watercolours for the vast majority of the painting. But I did add in some charcoal at the end for fun and to make parts of the piece stand out more. I actually listened to the lord of the rings soundtracks whilst painting this for inspiration! I really enjoyed painting this piece and feel very happy with the final result.
You can see a WIP shot of the piece on my fb page. https://www.facebook.com/eveserenusking/photos/a.1956952991193058.1073741837.1699849606903399/1962631877291836/?type=3&theater
