This painting like my others may resemble a direct representation of a photograph, however I have combined multiple source images and the use of my artistic initiative to create and manipulate a new reality.

The series is concentrating on producing a role reversal in how we see our environment, and how the landscape becomes reduced and minute in comparison to the human figure.

I think I am going to explain how these eye glasses reflection paintings have evolved from learning what works best over the past couple I have made.

I start with an environment and a model where I gather source pics. It's difficult to position yourself so your not interfering with the reflected illusion. What I have found works best is taking multiple source pictures of the model including focusing on the actual glasses frame, the skin and eye and also the reflected image in the lens. I then combine them all to create a more detailed and clearer reality than a single shot photograph. Also because the reflected image is reduced so small, I find a lot of the detail is lost and blurred., So I therefore turn around 180 degrees away from the model and shoot multiple snapshot images and close ups of the surrounding area to gather the lost details and information that I require. Once all these elements are combined they create the illusion of a photo reality.

thanks for looking

p.s I am not sure if the colour balance is correct as I have recently had to change a broken computer screen, my screen now seems to be have more of a blueish tint to it which I cant seem to change. I am unsure if I have over compensated for it.
