Ainulindale in colour

I've been adding oil colour to the under-painting of 'Ainulindale' in-between other work, despite the slow progress it's finally coming together. Tomorrow I shall move onto the foliage highlights and then the faces can be added when the paint is touch dry.

This is beautiful so far! I can't wait to see it completed. :) Will you be adding any indication of music to the painting?

Hey thanks!! Funny you should mention music because I have been listening to the 'Return Of The King' soundtrack today. Obviously that fits in well with the subject matter but if I'm honest John Tavener's 'The Lamb' has the kind of vocal power I was thinking of when sketching this out. Hopefully the singing heads when they are added will indicate those amazing harmonies somehow!?
