Beautiful Waterhouse Video:

At the recently redesigned johnwilliamwaterhouse.com, make sure you view this video of Waterhouse sketches, drawings, and paintings of Tennyson’s Lady of Shalott. It is stunning to see the work of an artist through each stage: inspiration, studies, and finally, the finished masterpiece.

Description from the site:

A slideshow of Waterhouse’s paintings, studies and drawings inspired by Tennyson’s poem The Lady of Shalott. Includes photos of Waterhouse, and of his edition of Tennyson’s poems in which he sketched out ideas for paintings. The medieval music is Adiu Adiu Dous Dame, composed by Francesco Landini c. 1350-97, and performed by Mediva (Magnatune).

Also, here’s a link to artmagick’s Waterhouse playlist.
