Photo Painting

Photo Painting is the task taking any given photo and painting it on canvas, paper, wood, and other art mediums. It is very similar to an artist sitting on a sandy beach and painting the beautiful sunset. The only difference is that the artist uses a photo as a reference as opposed to the actual sunset. Which photos can be painted Can an artist paint any type of photo, or are there only specific photos which can be painted?

The first three are straight forward, and the last is any photo which does not fall into any of the three categories. An artist can be experienced in any category. However, better results are achieved when an artist has been concentrating on a specific category throughout their artistic profession. It is also arguable that individual / group portraits are the hardest to do, since they require the artist to capture the physical characteristics of the individuals being painted, which is not an easy task. Pet lovers will most likely argue that pet portraits are as difficult. However, if an artist paints a dog a little overweight, or his nose a little too wide, it is not the same as doing the same for an individual.

When going about this task, one needs to know the term photo resolution. Photo resolution is measured by DPI (Dots Per...

In the 16th century, full-scale drawings were transferred onto the support by pouncing charcoal dust through holes pricked in the paper.
