I know, many of you like to take photos. Which of YOUR photos, do you think, could be a basis for a painting? Set a link!

  3. Hi Dietmar
    Some years before paintig was more important for me as photography. I used watercolors and oil. I used photographic pictures to finish my paintings started on a place in the nature at home. Perhaps i will send some of my Works on my flickr stream.
    Gratulation to your paintings

  7. Very, very cool, F.T.! I love it!
    I did not know you were a painter in addition to being a photographer AND a musician! That’s a very impressive artistic resume, sir!

    That creates loads of ideas in the brain.

  13. Love what you did as a painting developed from your collection of NY subway photos. Great blending that did not destroy any of the original qualities in the photos. I am not a photographer, but my daugher, son, and daughter-in-law all have great collections posted on Flickr. I have permission to paint from several of them. Also, my friend, MartinShone, has some heron photos at his blog FeedingTheDucks on wordpress that I have permission to paint. I hope you will take at look at Martin’s photography.

  17. You are very talented. I admire people who can create art from actual brushes, paints, pencils, etc. Mine are digitally created. My favorite one so far was a digital watercolor effect I did of a photo I took of Mykonos windmills:

  18. Trying to trick us there, eh Frizz? I was going to say, that last picture was one hell of a realistic painting. LOL. I tend to see fabricscapes in some of the photos I view. I wish my nimble fingers were as talented, and my eyes as focused, as my imagination is, when I view some of the many sights I see on a daily basis. Of course having the time to turn dreams to reality would be a gift too. Either way, I like your paintings. I’m glad you have the time to transform some of your photography into works of art. You do a good job. Nice share. 🙂
