olde_fashioned: (Waterhouse -- Psyche)
John William Waterhouse, has been one of my absolute favourite artists ever since I learned of his existence. He needs no preamble, and this time around I've gone for a much simpler approach, to better allow the beauty of the original works to do all the talking. ;)

I've preserved the title of the each painting in the URL and file names.

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy!

''She has a lovely face, // God in His mercy lend her grace, // The Lady of Shalott.'' )
olde_fashioned: (Waterhouse -- Miranda and the Tempest)
It seems an age since I've posted any icons! I have a veritable army of them cluttering up my harddrive, so I plan on getting them up and posted before they all go to waste. ;-P

John William Waterhouse is one of my favourite artists, and I decided to do something a bit different with this batch, including both plain textless icons as well as fancier ones.

As always, never alter my graphics, comment, credit, and enjoy!

it's a light that burns so bright // it guides you through the night // and leads you to me )
olde_fashioned: (Waterhouse -- The Lady of Shalott)
Having recently become interested in making desktop wallpapers as well as icons, here is my first public attempt: John William Waterhouse's The Lady of Shalott. Fans of Anne of Green Gables will recognize the poetry. ;-)

I am half sick of shadows... )
olde_fashioned: (Waterhouse -- Miranda and the Tempest)
A batch of icons, including George Dunlop Leslie, Alfred Stevens, John William Waterhouse, and a few others. As always, please credit/comment if taking, and enjoy!

Dance me into the night // Underneath the full moon shining so bright // Turning me into the light... )

olde_fashioned: (freedom -- horse)
Another batch of icons, and this time I have indulged my inner equestrienne. ;-) Most of these are horse-related, but I've thrown in a few random paintings of lovely ladies in pretty dresses. :-P

{~} 1-22 are photographs of horses, mostly Bob Langrish and horses-photos.org stock (hey, a pun!)
{~} 23-32 are from paintings by George Stubbs; right-click to see the names of the paintings.
{~} 33-43 are of various women in art, including some by Waterhouse, Edmund Blair Leighton, Lord Frederick Leighton, Vigee Le Brun, and Van Dyck. Again, right-click to see the URL's and names.

~ Comment/credit if taking (and please tell me which number you're using, since I've been experimenting with my styles and I'd like to know what you like)
~ No altering/stealing/hotlinking
~ Enjoy!


The rest are here! )
