Being an unconventional beauty and model of the Pre-Raphaelite era I wanted to enhance Elizabeth Siddal's red hair by using pinks and reds to create a focus on this as she slowly dipped into the water. Since nature and botany are key in the painting, I included my own rendition with Sakura, drawing on my focus on Japanese inspired art and kept the violets around her neck. In my permutation, her hands are not upturned but rest gently on her stomach as though she has accepted the madness and her fate. I love researching and envisioning the concept for my art, in addition to the renderings and the depth of skill required to reach the desired style. Like the artists of this era who painted their favorite scenes from certain plays and stories, I started out creating fanart of my favorite shows and movies so I definitely relate to the source of inspiration.
