Art: Defense Tower by Artist Deanne Flouton
The defense tower was part of a network of eleven fortifications that defended the island of Menorca. It has deteriorated due to the passage of time, the strong northern winds and the effects of salt residue from the sea. Located near a Roman archeological village which is being excavated on an ongoing basis, it commands a panoramic view of the area and oversees a small port where amphoras and other treasures have been rescued from the shallow waters by divers.

The washed out photo, taken at the height of a sultry summer day, was used as a reference to digitally repaint the scene in a more vivid light in Studio Artist. The color was modified to add depth and contrast, and a dramatic sky was painted in to give it a new dimension. Overall: My impressionistic view of an historical monument.
