For many artists, a special photograph sometimes calls out to be translated into a painting. What the photo captured in an instant, you can transform into your own lasting personal statement as you master every stage from original photos to finished painting. Enhance composition, colors, and forms. Crop for close-ups. Add or eliminate features. Alter light and color. Combine the best of several photos. Various media get special treatments—oil, watercolor, pastel, gouache, acrylic, color pencils, egg tempera. So do a range of subjects, including landscapes, seascapes, portraits, animal studies—as well as moods from intimate to historic, romantic to rugged.
