Which Photo to Art Method Is Best?

So you’ve finally taken the time to look into photo to art paintings and you aren’t entirely sure which method you should choose in order to make your paintings look the absolutely best that they possibly can.

First of all, you have four different methods that are the most popular. By using these methods, you allow yourself to choose what will make your painting look the absolute best and also take it to the next level as far as its appearance goes.

There are several reasons why you would want to have a photo to art painting created. Let’s face it-most of the time, a photo just doesn’t cut it or really show how special a certain image is to you – especially if you’ve never had a photo to art painting made.

First there is the colored pencil method. This is a very nice, very cute means of changing your photos. This works best with those photos which depict children or those that picture animals or other cute scenes. Make sure that you really want the look of colored pencils. Either they will have extremely exaggerated highlights or they won’t be very highlighted. It’s dependent on what the photo currently looks like.

Then there is the simple pencil sketch. The pencil sketch is really, really simple and is great for those who have a very simple portrait that they want turned photo to art. A lot can be done as far as shading goes and there’s not much color, but at the same time, it adds a lot to a photo and helps to highlight it without going overboard. Perfect for those who have a simple picture that they want to keep it simple.

Then you have oil paintings. Perfect for anything, but especially vivid paintings and paintings that need to have a bit more brightness added to them. Make sure when you are choosing oil paint that you take the time to picture the painting as an oil painting. Is also one of the most life-like interpretations of each and every photo to art portrait that you can think of as far as color and shading go.

Then you have the good old watercolor. Watercolor is a very hard to deal with medium-probably one of the reasons we try to teach our children watercolor so early! Luckily, there are many artists who have already mastered watercolor! This is perfect for simple scenes, such as kids playing in a pool and the like.

You can choose whichever method feels the best to you. But remember that you need to picture your picture before you finally choose which method that you want to use.

You can get your photo to art either online or you can get them at a gallery from a commissioned artist. However, it is much cheaper for you to get your photos to art from online and check what the price will be before you are obligated to pay them.

Andy Denzler Paintings – Hyperreality And The Decisive Moment In Our Society

Andy Denzler’s ‘glitch’ paintings exhibition (Just Another Day In Paradise) is a commentary on the one hand, on the illusion and reality in our society; and on the other, the ephemerality of our existence. Those fleeting moments of despair, disgust, sexual desire and loneliness, captured in the most intimate settings, bring to mind Henri Cartier-Bresson’s ‘decisive moment’ in photography. It is also no accident that pale, low-chroma colors are used, giving them a nostalgic impression, like analog photos from over 25 years ago that have faded over time.

These techniques allow the viewer see the fakeness of photo-realism and the illusion of reality. A reality which nowadays has been hijacked by images fed to us every conscious hour of our lives; hyped up, Photoshopped to perfection, always in excess, they have become more real than reality itself, a simulated ‘hyperreality’ or what philosopher Jean Baudrillard calls ‘similacra’. What has become of our society is that reality is not what we gain from direct experience, but what we see on TV, a successive bombardment of information-rich similacra, slowly dissolving into our minds, replacing what we once thought was real.

Andy Denzler himself refers to Baudrillard and hyperreality when asked about the meaning of his work, which may explain the sarcasm involved in the title of the exhibition (Just Another Day In Paradise), a ‘paradise’ in which we can’t tell what’s fiction and what’s real anymore and where our lives has become a fragmented series of ‘perpetual presents’ where things may happen logically, in sequence, or they maybe totally random, where one thing does not necessarily lead to another. In this state, cause and effect is not a given; it’s not a ‘truth’ anymore. Our memories, which once not long ago was clear and true, has become blurry.

There are 2 layers involved in the process of production for these paintings: the first is painted photo-realistically, according to the source photo and allowed to dry. The second layer is painted on abstractly, with fluid brush strokes, and then sections of it are then scraped off, revealing the realistic layer underneath. This can be seen as an act of ‘deconstruction’. In Black Flower Dress (2013) strips of it are realistically painted, providing a feel of the underlying materiality of the dress itself. This, contrasted with the rest of the blurred vision, provides a contrast between the memory of the past and our perpetual present.
