Hobbit Foil Art

Marcus and I have been reading, The Hobbit, together for a couple weeks now.

In history, Marcus has been studying a little about the Golden Age and how painters in that era would sometimes use gold leafing in their art. So we decided to make some Hobbit pictures using silver leafing (tin foil).

Marissa drew the scenes for us and we each took one, colored it in and added silver touches.
