When working from other peoples photos / paintings you need to change the scene so that the scene becomes original again. There are three classes on Paint Basket TV that show you how to do that. They are:

Painting from Photos

Combining Photographs for Painting and

Photo Editing for Artists

If you never want to run into any copyright issues, then I highly recommend that you watch these classes

Just added to another post:

Just to let you know:
As per the section Forum Tech Stuff - Fine Print - Current Registration Agreement, any copyright infringement committed by any of the members of the Forum in the Forum is to the account of the individual committing the infringement and not the Paint Basket.

What happens outside of the Paint Basket is not our responsibility, but I would hate to see any of our member get into trouble. Remember the onus is on you to know the law. One of the biggest problems happens when someone does not like you and reports you through jealousy. Don't take chances.

Because I have commented so many times in various places, and have a section which explains the copyright Law in detail, I personally will not be adding any more comments re copyright in the future.

Nolan, it appears I may have erred by posting a drawing from a catalog cover. It is not for sale, just me doing some practice. have I made a big error? Should I delete it from my portfolio? :help:

I wouldn't panic too much, you are not selling the drawing. What I would do is go and edit the description and add a note saying something like "drawn for practice purposes from XYZ catalog as part of my personal collection"

I am doing some reading and research throughout the site and would like to find out where the three courses that Nolan has posted about above on how to avoid copyright issues?

They may be mixed in with some of the other courses/classes and there is so much to review and study, I am not sure I have seen these three classes yet.

Any help would be appreciated.

Ginger,

I wrote about copyright laws in the Sept. 1, 2016,  issue of the Paintbasket newsletter, with links to all the topics.  I hope they are still valid.   I tried to put the link to that issue but it won't work because of a default to prevent spamming.

I am going to try to send it in a Personal message, so look there please.  If that does not work, send me your email in a PM, and I will cut/paste the article.
