Millais captures Ophelia perfectly- melancholy yet completely romanticized. When I learned more about the woman in the painting, Elizabeth Siddal, I resonated deeply being both an artist and a professional model; same as her. Often asked why I model (with my degree in Industrial Design) I answer that it is an artistic expression as much as a job and being familiar with its demands, I connected deeper with Elizabeth Siddal. The composition is the same for this permutation but my own style of pointillism builds the painting's layers. Color theory, whereby I have used layers of only of 6 colors in total (shown in the stamp on the top right) fools the eye into forming the full color spectrum. This abstraction of layering dots instead of brushstrokes to create features and foreground is my interpretation of the moment right before death when the particles of life itself begin to drift out of focus.
