'Even as he spoke thus, they heard a cry in the woods, and they stood still as grey stones, listening. But the voice was a fair voice, though filled with grief, and it seemed that it called ever upon a name, as one that searches for another who is lost. And as they waited one came through the trees, and they saw that he was a tall Man, armed, clad in black, with a long sword drawn; and they wondered, for the blade of the sword also was black, but the edges shone bright and cold.'

first, let me that i absolutely love all of your drawings. you have an incredible talent and a great perception of the characters in these books. (i envy you so). i have a question, merely out of curiosity and mostly out of awe: how do you get all of the fine details in? i personally prefer drawing in pencil, though i love admiring works in all mediums, and am unfamiliar in the delicate art of watercolor. how do keep fine details from smearing, or keep white from turning a different color? how long does it usually take to paint a picture like this? i'm so curious, and i apologize for it, but i am simply in awe of your amazing ability. you are truly inspiring. thankyou.

The detail in the grass is impressive, it must've taken quite a while!
