Cave of the storm nymphs
It was my 21st birthday last Friday (woo!) and my parents bought me several large glossy art books, needless to say I nearly died when I opened them. One of them is Victorian Painting by Lionel Lambourne and its the most amazing book I've ever read in my life, its 500 pages of pure awesome. I found this painting in the 'Nudes and Classical influences' section and it blew my mind. It's called Cave of the Storm Nymphs by Sir Edward John Poynter, have a look at it, it's truly fantastic.
Anyway, I decided to do a study of the nymphs because I haven't done a speed paint or a study in a long while, I wasn't going to upload this but sencilsketches asked me to. So here you go WIP I of my Storm Nymph study.
