Nisimaldar by neral85 Nisimaldar by neral85
Nísimaldar - the country around the haven of Eldalondë on Númenor's western coasts. The name means 'fragrant trees', and it was so called because of the great variety of rare and beautiful trees that grew there. It was the only place in Númenor where mallorn trees grew, and it was from the stock of these that the Golden Wood of Lórien came.

pen and watercolour

I created this picture originally for a callendar I was making together with my sister ~Mechor as a christmas present for our grandma. :) This is then the picture for May. You can see the whole calendar here.

If you like my Tolkien-related art, look at my related journal or gallery folder.
But you can find even more of my pictures on my website Angrenost.cz. It's in Czech, but you can still look over the gallery of illustrations. Enjoy! :-)

I'm in awe of your patience. The tiny houses must have taken ages to draw! And as has been said before, it's wonderful to see some illustrations of Númenor that go beyond the big cities or the great wave :)

Absolutely gorgous! There are quite a few pictures of Numenor around, but they mostly
are maps of the whole island or pictures of the cities. There are not too many that show
the natural areas.

Yours is absolutely gorgous! It makes me wish that I could have visited Numenor
(before it turned to evil of course!)

Have you ever considered doing a picture of the Gardens of Lorien? Or of the two trees
of the Valar? That would be a sight to see!
