Click for full image

Here's a quick watercolor sketch - first time in weeks I've had a chance to sit down and "relax/draw." Better get back at it!

Do you have any more nymph sketches?:) i'm actually inspired with your drawings in having my first tattoo =)

Anthony VanArsdale said...

That's a first! :) I'm glad you like the sketches Jessica! Thanks! I'm afraid I don't have anymore like this one unfortunately. I'll need to do more nymphs in the future.

great work

I have used your work as inspiration for my exam. I particularly like your wood nymphs. Can you give me an idea of your inspirations. Why do you use the materials you do?

Anthony VanArsdale said...

Thank you Gabriella.

For the wood nymphs I would say inspiration comes from nature, and tying in a human element linked more directly with nature brings out the character that sort of bridges the gap you might say.

This image was done in watercolor, but I haven't worked in that medium for some time, since the digital art is faster when working commercially.
