Nasmith Paints Eastwatch-by-the-Sea

Ted Nasmith, one of the “Big Three” Tolkien artists (along with John Howe and Alan Lee), turned his hand to depicting castles of the Seven Kingdoms for the World of Ice and Fire worldbook, which ended up being published in the 2011 A Song of Ice and Fire Calendar. But that was, we knew, not the last work of his we would be seeing for the world book… not least when it was announced that he had been hired to produce the art for the new limited edition of A Game of Thrones.

So it was with some pleasure that it was pointed out by Finnish fan raijap that there was a new entry in his gallery of George R.R. Martin. It is, I think, now one of my very favorite depictions of the Wall, right up there with his Castle Black painting. I believe this piece is also intended for the World of Ice and Fire.
