I very much consider Middle Earth to be my happy place and the works of Tolkien have long been one of my favourite things! So as I’ve not posted any calligraphy art for a while I thought I’d share this one.
So the actual song Tolkien wrote isn’t actually sung in The Lord of the Rings, part of its last verse is sung in The Return of the King, by Pippin. On the soundtrack of the film, this track is named Edge of Night and Billy Boyd sings it beautifully.
Home is behind
The world ahead
And there are many paths to tread
To the edge of night
Until the stars are all alight
Mist and shadow
Cloud and shade
All shall fade
I love working with water colours to try and bring as much nature into my art as possible and combining it with my love of all things green with my love of calligraphy and quotes, they don’t take long to do, but look really effective against a white wall – my funny little brain likes to pretend its alchemy!
