Maeglin stood by and said nothing...

'Therefore when Eöl was brought before Turgon he found no mercy; and they led him forth to the Caragdur, a precipice of black rock upon the north side of the hill of Gondolin, there to cast him down from the sheer walls of the city. And Maeglin stood by and said nothing...'   Silmarillion, Of Maeglin. It's Eöl's execution. The picture was painted for a contest titled 'A tragic character in Tolkien's books'. I chose Eöl, because he's my favourite Tolkien's character. Idril visible through the window - she's sad, because earlier she begged for mercy for Eöl. The man beside her is Turgon, still furious with Eöl and grieving because of his sister (Aredhel) death.   It took a looot of time to finish. It's made in watercolours, A4 format.
