Gandalf the White on Blue Panel by Jay Johnstone

Gandalf the White holding staff, painted on wooden panel in Gouache in Greek Orthodox style.

The painting was sealed with antiquing varnish and ‘baked’ to add to the aged look.
One of my very early explorations linking Tolkien’s characters with Medieval iconography.

The connection between Gandalf and Moses came in a dream and was the catalyst that sent me off on my painted wandering through Middle Earth.
