Parting from Eressëa.

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This illustration is taken from another brief passage in the fifth chapter of the Quenta Silmarillion. It is written that a kin of elves (the Teleri) dwelt in an island in sight of Valinor, the blessed land. From there, the light of Valinor came to them over the sea, and they felt the desire to go and dwell there. So they built ships in the likeness of swans, which were drawn to Valinor by real swans. It was very difficult to get purple and pink shades with the watercolours (which is the medium), as well as achieving the glittering stars
