Trolls turn to stone in the sunlight obviously.
This is a revision of an old pencil drawing from when I'd just discovered Alan Lee.
Aside from his huge influence it's inspired by fairytales/myths and the wonderful landscape of Dartmoor.
I used just four colours on the whole thing, all mixed beforehand so I could work wet-in-wet without having to stop (my normal modus operandi when painting is to mix as I need). I also used just one brush.
