My Muse by Achen089 My Muse by Achen089
My entry for :icongrimgloomtale:'s contest about our Muse.

My Muse is some sort of forest nymph. She wears flowers in her hair and she resides in the abandoned gardens of my imagination. She whispers stories in my ear, about long forgotten realms and knights and princesses. She visits me any time of the day but i chose to paint one of our night time meetings because night has something magical and mystical about it. ;)

Pencil, watercolours, 16x27 cm.

Your Muse is so beautiful! :love: I think this illustration shows cleverly all what you usually capture in your works: your love for the classic stories and fairy tales, for mythology, for nature, for beauty, for mystery... It recalls perfectly all your inspirations and your way to express them.
I like the composition, the arc formed by the tree and the column give a romantic vibe to the paining and remembers me to the classic illustrations from the storybooks ^_^

Beautiful and very inspiring. It reminded me instantly of my best friend, my muse. They are curious creatures :)

I love the way she is tenderly stroking your hair, and she looks a lot liek you too.

The expression of your Muse is just so fitting, and it's not only about the face, but her whole posture. And I'm sincerely jealous of these rose bushes.
