Red Christmas Ornament

My first Christmas painting of the year!!! WOOT!!

I am in the mood to paint Christmas ornaments, so I might be posting many paintings that have to do with Christmas. I am quite excited for this winter, because the mounting that me and my brother go snowboardng at is opening in 13 days!! But back to the painting...

I have found it quite diffulcult to paint the main red color of the ornament. Red is a color I really enjoy, but really hate painting with it. Especially when it has to darken to burganday or black. Yuck!
For the sparkle part, I actually used sparkles, not paint. I think it adds a special Christmas-y/unique look.

Orthanc Rescue - Lord of the Rings Painting

Lord of the Rings - Orthanc: Saruman's Tower in Fangorn Forest.

Since I was in the mood for doing landscapes, I decided to do a Lord of the Rings piece. I was going through The Fellowship of the Ring movie trailers, and ran across this picture. I immedietally wanted to paint it, with a picture of the One Ring. So here it is!
