I’m a big fan of Robert Gonsalves, and I hope you won’t mind if I share another one of his beautiful transformations. You might make a honest mistake, thinking it’s one of his newer works, but it’s quite opposite in fact. For many years now I wanted to show this painting to you, yet it was impossible to find decent quality version – up until now. Aside from ships (motif this artist uses so often), there is another illusory transformation present. Can you see it? Where does one idea stops, another other begins… How about a hint ;D

    I’d say the transformation begins at the far right corner because before that (from the left) it’s clearly a bollard, after that it’s clearly a woman. This isn’t any kind of optical illusion, though, and i wish you wouldn’t include this stuff. (Didn’t like bridge to ships much either)

    looks soothing

    The women turn into rails :D The gaps between into ships. Have to say though, the woman and rails are a but haphazardly placed :/

    I’m a big fan of Gonsalves as well. He’s got a really definite style but each painting is a success for this same reason.
