This is Alan Lee’s illustration in the end of ‘Leaf By Niggle’    “He was the sort of painter who can paint leaves better than trees. He used to spend a long time on a single leaf, trying to catch its shape, and its sheen, and the glistening of dewdrops on its edges. Yet he wanted to paint a whole tree, with all of its leaves in the same style, and all of them different.”            —  J.R.R. Tolkien, ‘Leaf By Niggle’
