    "Paint My Photo" photo reference website

    Hi! A couple folks on AFA turned me on to pmp-art.com, a website where photographers post their work with the express intent of encouraging artists to paint, draw or otherwise artistically interpret their photographs.

    Assuming it's allowed, I thought I'd start a discussion thread. If there's much interest, I'll edit this first post to include more introductory info about the site...

    Cool, Kynara. I especially love your Closeups of flowers. Have you had anyone paint one of your photos yet? You just inspired me to post some of my photos...

    Thanks! Yes, I'm KPinAK there also. I have posted only one photo and about 15 paintings/drawings.

    I'm on there too! I love that site! I've done several paintings (five are in my gallery there so far) from photos there and have them posted in my gallery at the PMP site. It's nice to use photos that you know people want you to paint.

    They like when you use a photo to post your painting of it in your gallery there and include a link to the photo you used, and to also post a link in the comments on the photo back to your painting. Sounds complicated but it's not really. It makes it interesting to be able to see the paintings and also the photos people use.
