Click onto any image to see enlargements. The images can be best appreciated from a distance of six feet approx (1.75m) in a darkened room. Originally a small watercolour image, I painted from a photo of Camarón de las Isla, the famed flamenco singer I developed the portrait using Photoshop in stages. My intention was to see how far I could take it while still retaining the essence of the subject. At times, the result almost resembles a map of an island surrounded by smaller islands, but the eyes always tug the observer back to seeing it as a face. I experimented with various colours to what extent they altered the perception.
