RIVENDELL Limited Edition print by Alan Lee

RIVENDELL Limited Edition print by Alan Lee

Currently in stock

One of Alan's finest paintings for the illustrated 'Lord of the Rings'. The original was hanging over his fireplace until it sold at auction. Image size is 477 x 295mm. Overall board size is 625 x 417mm. Supplied unmounted due to it's size. Signed and numbered to 500 by Alan Lee. Printed on acid-free board on a hand-press using light-fast inks and proofed against the original painting. The technique in Alan's watercolour work is unbelievable. He uses very few technical tricks to achieve the results. There are certain things you have to do - white is the white of the paper so Alan has had to paint where the white isn't to get that effect on the waterfall! The limited edition is pretty much the same size as the original painting. The original has a grey watercolour border which is shown in the book. It's a great way to bring out a picture that is being printed in a book but is a bit limiting on a large fine-art print so we left it off and the image is the size the original was with the border (confused?). The colours are identical to the original painting. Well, let's put it this way - I couldn't spot the difference and nor could the artist so that's good enough for me. This print is in Tolkien - Hobbit by Alan Lee.
