|Luncheon on the Grass, 1862, Edouard Manet|
|A portrait from a flash photo.|
Noticed how most facial modeling
(especially the chin) is lost.
|Few, if any, artists drawing on location, would add a|
parallax effect to their work. Thus, when seen in a painting,
parallax cries out as to the use of a photo as source material.
|The Large Bathers, 1887, Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Pointless|
action from the early days of painting from photos--
a painted snapshot--19th century paparazzi style.
|Though this scene is obviously an exaggeration, but it underlines the pitfall of failing to "edit" unnecessary content.|
|Don't let photographic aesthetics impose on your artist's instincts.|
|Rogers vs. Koons--changes not transformative enough.|
Cariou vs. Prince--changes significant and transformative.
|Choose, edit, project, draw, paint.|
That's all there is to it.
|It's cheaper than buying tickets.|
