Paint My Photo Newletter – Free and full of wonder

Paint My Photo (PMP) is a wonderful FREE site for those of you that would like to find photos to paint where the photographer has given permission.Screen Shot 2015-03-21 at 6.56.20 AM

In addition to the site is a lovely digital Newsletter that comes out quarterly.  It is a fun way to browse through available photos for inspiration.




In this edition there is an interview with Anslie G in Australia that I used for inspiration to paint this “Arabian Reflection.” (Click to enlarge any photos)

Through the interview and portfolio, you  get a sense of the photographer’s loves and inspirations.


RobynRos Hidden Treasures Lovelock combs through the PMP site looking for hidden treasures.






There is always an artist showing step by step how they painted a particular picture.  In this newsletter Neil Nicholson shows painting a landscape with acrylics.  Alcohol artists needn’t worry about the medium, the process is helpful.

One of my favorite portions of this newletter is a group of abstract paintings and the photographs that inspired the artist.  Awesome and very “inky.”

I hope you enjoy the PaintMyPhoto site and Newsletter as much as I do.

Here’s short video from the founder Roy Simmons describing the reason for the site and you even get to watch him paint a landscape.

    I joined this site a few weeks ago but I haven’t had a chance to really use it. Thanks for sharing this!! I didn’t know they had a newsletter! I think it’s a wonderful resource!
