It involved a photo of my daughter changed with effects like Find edges and sumi e , drybrush, paint daubs and erasing parts and combining it with a wall hanging she had of dolphins, which was also changed a bit - possibly with drybrush.

She has a habit of running her fingers through her hair. I photographed this Rosetti painting, cropped it, used several effects on it to simplify it such as dry brush, and possibly sumi e. I copied and flipped the crop I'd made, doubled the canvas size and pasted it to join as a mirror image and then integrated the photo of my daughter, applying the same effects to make the images gel together as one.
Lots of use of layers and techniques to unite the 2 very different images to make a cohesive finished piece.
I'll post more in the series.

The subject is my daughter. I took a lot of photos of her and her belongings and surroundngs. These wine bottles stood in the kitchen with the light of the window shining through.
I layered a photo of her at varying opacities and then applied effects, simplifying shapes and adding graphic elements, layering +++ as I went.
Other images combined her with rugs and hangings and windows - I'll show some of those in days to come.
