Daphne Picture

I'm a big fan of greek and roman mythology, and so I wanted to do something from one of the myths that I enjoy. I also wanted to draw a tree. So the story of Daphne, who fled from Apollo and was turned into a tree. There are many variations on this myth, anything from she turned herself to a tree, she begged her father to turn her into a tree, and so on. But the end result is the same, it was apparently a permanent change and apollo then used the leaves from her tree to form a crown as an expression of eternal love to her.

This was done on crescent #100 illustration board, using a mixture of watercolors for the tree and background and colored pencils for her skin and hair.
