"APOLLO AND DAPHNE"
A preliminary study testing technique and visual composition. Pointillism in 0.5, 0.3 and 0.1 ink balanced with void spaces, left unrendered.
Bernini captured movement, drama and climax of action within a frozen split second moment, moulding marble as if it were wax.
I hope for pointillism to reflect the essence of transformation of Daphne's body from nymph to laurel tree. (Ovid's Metamorphoses)
