Have begun some experiments with facial shapes, using pieces of mirror paper, and paint. I have discovered some interesting phenomenon; the flash adds a golden colour to the mirror; which in itself adds a new dimension to the photograph, which I believe could be a good reference for further paintings. I have used mainly red paint at the moment; which adds a sense of the sinister, or perhaps intrigue to the image. It is only early days yet, but I foresee some good scope for further experimentation. In some sense, the images are unique to every viewer, as every viewer will add a different aspect of light and shade to the image,or portrait.When the viewer tries to make sense of the picture, they see themselves reflected back; it is quite disconcerting, yet intriguing.
