So you’ve just heard that you can have your photos turned into paintings. This is pretty cool, since you can take a small photo and turn it into something much larger and even make it accessible to those who may not have a copy of the photo or perhaps use the portrait for memorial purposes. But the question is-what exactly can you have changed from photo to painting?
First of all, you can have a picture of your pets changed from a photo into a picture. You can pick a simple picture, one of them sleeping, or pretty much anything that you can think of and have it changed. If you just recently lost your pet, this can be a really nice way of reminding the family of how special that they were.
Secondly, you have the option of having wedding photos painted. This is perfect for anniversaries or for those who have lost their spouses. It’s a special way in order to remember a very special time and to also have it forever memorialized.
You can also have pictures of newborns painted. If you want to show off your little one at their best and first moments, you can have their photo to painting painted and then put it up in a special place in your home.
Or perhaps you have an older relative who can’t see very well and you want them to have a few photos that they can see well again. This would be a perfect opportunity to give them a painting of a few of their favorite pictures and bring them back to life for them. Take the time to really examine what types of paintings that you want to use.
You can either buy from a company online or you can instead go to an art gallery. Keep in mind that shopping at an art gallery for an artist who will paint your picture might be a bit more expensive. You cannot be sure of how much it will end up costing you and in most cases it is simply cheaper to go by the online route.
There are also several options as to what medium your painting will be painted with. You can choose from oil paintings, which last a long time and have rather vivid colors (a perfect choice for vivid pictures!).
Then you have watercolor. Watercolor takes some true skill as the paint is a bit tricky to manipulate, but the results are soft, almost angelic. Perfect for photos to paintings of newborns and toddlers.
Color and pencil sketches are also really nice options for those who prefer a cleaner, more regular look. They are very simple-but this doesn’t mean that they are any less beautiful. Take the time to decide which type of artwork will look the best with your paintings. You need to make sure that you are happy with the artwork and that it fits what you wanted/needed from it.
