characters are naiads, the fresh water sisters to nymphs. I wanted them
young and beautiful but also give a subtle dark undertone. Unlike
nymphs who were by and large altruistic creatures, naiads were just as
likely to drown you as help you.
I wanted the piece to have a very classic look but also have some small elements that maybe you wouldn't see in a classical painting.
Yes, I know Waterhouse did a painting with naiads in it. Yes, I was aware of it. No, I did not try to rip his piece. Yes, the head in the upper left is a homage to his inspiring work.
The piece was included in Spectrum 17: The Best of Contemporary Fantastic Art
