Artist Statement

This illustration is a conceptual representation of Colonial Willamsburg featuring some it's iconic buildings in an autumnal setting. My hope was to capture a sense of the area's history, but also to visually communicate the beauty of this region and state of Virginia. The artwork is brought to life through a playful ink drawing on paper, and digital painting and color development in the application Procreate on the Ipad Pro. Enjoy!! - Chris Arnold
