Travelers at the Gate


I used to produce sets of small paintings to be sold at conventions such as Philcon or Balticon or Darkovercon. These would usually be "generic" fantasy scenes such as could take place in any game or written tale. This is one of a fall crop of mostly architectural fantasy pictures. These travelers, in the orange twilight sunlight, could be Darkovans, or your gaming party reaching a destination. The purple sky and golden leaves and yellowing grass reflect the autumn scenery I viewed while I was creating this bunch. The gatehouse and tower are adapted from a medieval French structure. I don't do these any more because I don't go to enough conventions to make it worthwhile. 

"Travelers at the Gate" is ink and watercolor on illustration board, 7" x 10", fall 1991.

It may be "generic", but I like it all the same. :)
