Escape - II

This painting of mine reminded me a little bit of the Lord of the rings. But I thought the water was not as it would be in the Shire. There would be a a gentle breeze causing smooth ripples on the greenish water which would then reflect the golden sunlight to create a magical ambiance. So I thought of redoing the painting.

Though this did not come anywhere near what I imagined still it looked good to me. I hope you enjoy it too. By the way I have one last ticket to the Shire left. Anybody game? :)

I like the subtle color shifts. The water looks good.

Paula,
Thanks for your appreciation.

Crystal,
While I was waiting near the boat 2 little hobbits came along. I think one of them was called Froddo and the other was called Sam. They wanted to go to Shire too and requested me for tickets. Something in their eyes said they needed the tickets much more than me. So I gave away both my tickets. But next time I plan to go to Shire I am taking you along. :)
