Figurative artist Cayce Zavaglia applies her experience as a painter to these unbelievably detailed portraits. Each one begins with a photoshoot of between 100 and 150 shots of the subject, from which she chooses the best, then recreates it on a 20 x 25cm Belgian linen canvas with one-ply embroidery thread.

The shots above are from both sides of the same canvases.
