Lady of the Swamp

- Personal Project -

I love Southern Gothic and I was really excited to create a scene that fits such a peculiar and creepy mood. There's something compelling about the image of a woman in a white dress in the water, but in almost every iteration of this the woman is depicted as a victim, mostly as a floating cadaver. I thought it would be interesting to make the woman in this piece more proactive, even predatory.
