Disturber of the Peace by BenWootten Disturber of the Peace by BenWootten
I was stoked to get the opportunity to relive some of my time on Lord of the Rings recently. I was asked to do this painting of Hobbiton, so while I am not working on the new film I did get to revisit the beautiful tranquil setting.

This is available as a print from Weta NZ, both in the shop (The Weta Cave) in Wellington and online through the Weta NZ site so please check it out. There is also an interview with myself to be found there as well as many other cool treats.

I really hope this painting captures the feel and nostalgia for you as it did you me as I painted it.

Disturber of the Peace by *BenWootten

The suggester says, "Disturber of the Peace by *BenWootten is a stunning recreation of The Shire. I love the green layers and all the details that carefully have been placed in this nostalgic landscape." ( Suggested by brammoolenaar and Featured by WDWParksGal )
