The Unexpected Party

The Unexpected Party

First of 4 paintings I created last semester for my independent study. Finally got the illustration scanned and learned of a new tool in photoshop that combines 2 files seamlessly into 1.

The Hobbit is written by professor JRR Tolkien and has been a favorite book of mine since childhood. The project was created from a book report I did in 7th grade where I drew images to include with the report. I’ve always had strong images set in my head for Tolkien’s creations and I used the independent study to create large rendered watercolor illustrations.

This is ‘The Unexpected Party’ of the dwarves arriving at Bilbo’s hobbit hole in order to plan the journey to reclaim their treasure.
