So I sketched some lines and used them as my training filter in dreamscope (second image below) but this was a bit weak so I used that image as another training for another dreamscope and then another generation each modifying the photo with a deeper and deeper filter.
Finally I took the results into Nik’s Colour Efx Pro to bring out the abstract, just a suspicion of a face but perhaps a little more contorted now a spirit in the shadows or just a trick of the light. Squiggles & colours that suggest tone and form.
Abstraction from a close up on reality
Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real.
