The Wood Nymph, Daphne.

By whiteboxer  
According to greek Mythology,Daphne, a beautiful wood nymph was being pursued by the god Apollo, with amorous intentions, so in order to escape unscathed she turned herself into a tree.

The model is a lady called Clare from a club portrait session and needless to say she doesn't have any such skin problems, but she does like the final image.

Thanks for looking and for any comments, good or bad.

A well worked and nicely balanced image. Love what you've done with her face and her gorgeous green eyes. I'm not surprised that she likes it.

The long marrow image works well here with the balance of the image & the face. Well done
