I'm ready to pick up the brushes again. I don't have a studio, so I'm planning to paint from photos for now.

The problem is that I paint much better than I photograph, and none of my own images meet the criteria for what I want to do.

I'm leaning towards tasteful nudes, macros of nature and perhaps dramatic landscapes. They won't be photo-realism, but may be recognizable enough to bring up coypright issues.

My question to the photographers of DPC is: Who would consider granting written permission to have a selection of their work used as a reference for a painting?

If I get any takers, I'll review the portfolios and request permission for the specific image before I start. If you are open to this idea, please post in this thread or send me a PM.

Thanks!
Roxanne

You are welcome to use any of mine, if you can one decent enough!!

You might find a landscape in my portfolio that you like.
05/26/2007 12:31:12 PM · #4
Your welcome to any of mine

05/26/2007 12:38:46 PM · #5
This is so exciting!

So many great images to choose from! I'm going to start with things that will appeal to the locals here in Florida, and then branch out from there.

Thanks to all who have offered. Now I'm off to scour portfolios and try to narrow it down to one to start with.

Hi Roxanne,
Can't supply any tasteful nudes, or actually any nudes for that matter, but you have my permission to use anything you find in my portfolio. There are 800+ images in there, so if you can't find something, fake it. (I need to find some nekkid women one day)

;)

You're welcome to use anything in my portfolio. If you can find anything good that is.
05/26/2007 12:49:27 PM · #8
Everyone is always permitted to use my pictures for showing, or painting :D
05/26/2007 12:50:56 PM · #9
If you find anything in mine that you like you're welcome to use it.
05/26/2007 12:53:57 PM · #10
Have a looksee at mine. There is a guy that I work with and his daughter paints and I have given her a couple of photos to paint.
05/26/2007 12:54:30 PM · #11
Same here. Not sure that you'll find any good landscapes, and no nudes. . . but feel free to scavenge around. :)
05/26/2007 01:01:27 PM · #12
im ok with it, you can probably find something in my portfolio...
05/26/2007 01:51:56 PM · #13
Tackle this one if you please... ;-)

I don't know if I have anything which will appeal to Floridians, but you're welcome to check.

I've seen the result of this kind of work before, and it's really cool; I'd love to see the painting and photo posted side by side when you're done.

Sure, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' greatandsmall. I've got some nature stuff on line. Help yourself.

You should have quite a selection by now. Hope you show us the results one of these days.

I tend to photograph landscapes a bit painterly. Feel free to look through and see if any inspire you! I would easily give permission on the stipulation that I can get some sort of 10x15 copy (e.g., photo of the painting). Personally, I think one of these would make nice paintings:

I think you should ask if anyone objects to you using their photos. Most everyone on here would probably be excited to see their shots as paintings.

If you can find any of mine you think may be suitable, feel free, although it seems you have some much better offers on the table already :)

Wow! This is such a great response. This morning I was starving for inspiration and now I'm overwhelmed!

Thanks again to everyone who has offered, and everyone who will. It may take some time, but I intend to look at all of your portfolios.

You may be right ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' MrEd, but I'm such a toe-stepper that I'd probably find the one person who objects.

' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/12253.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/12253.gif', '/') + 1) . ' nshapiro, those are just the type of landscapes that I would love to paint; and there are many more in the portfolios of those who have offered. Since I'm a little rusty, I am going to start with some simple and elegant macros and work my way into more complicated imagery. "Bass Harbor Light" is a perfect challenge, once I get back into practice. If I get into the landscapes I'll be ordering prints for a better look at the detail.

Of course I'll share images of the paintings; and will provide high-res copies to anyone who is interested.

Sounds like you have plenty already :-) but feel free to give my port a browse if you're still looking. I would be honored if you found something you liked :-)
