You will be given a photo - please see the LOGO image of the contest, of a famous artist from the past, from this you will paint an artwork 'Inspired by / homage to' - 1st. choice
You will be given a photo (to which I have full copyright as the original author) as an addition to the photo of the famous artist from the past. You will create an artwork using supplied photo - facial part only (later in the series whole figure), and combine with the famous artist from the past 'Inspired by' artwork. - 2nd. choice
Simple explanation - take a look at somebody on the street and paint that person into a painting from the past, face (later in the series whole figure) will be new, everything else from the original art will remain. I will call it the Shan Peck Homage Hybrid Art
1 - If you choose 1st. choice, you will be painting 'only' from the old master original art, your artwork needs to say Inspired by or homage to and the artist's name. If you get a painting to paint from and the art is by Raphael, you will name your art 'Inspired by Raphael' or 'Homage to Raphael'
2 - If you choose the Shan Peck Hybrid Art (this option is open only to artists that already worked with me and are published), you need to name the artwork 'Hybrid Homage to Raphael' for the contest only, at your websites and galleries, use the description 'Shan Peck's Hybrid Homage to Raphael by John Smith', if your name is John Smith.
3 - If you choose the Shan Peck Hybrid Homage Art and you finish the artwork within the contest time limit, you will get a free card to the next contest in this Shan Peck Hybrid Homage Art Series
4 - Choice 1 and 2 will have winners, 3 from the contest and I will award another 6, altogether 9 winners
5 - All artworks must be painted as new, no uploads from yesterday or 10 years ago.
6 - Hand-painted art only, the artwork needs to be for sale with a clear description of size (18 x 24 inches for example) and the media used, 'oils on canvas' for example and legal purposes Inspired by or homage to (name of the original artist)
7 - You can post also partial artworks - which helps to see your technique or just progress, this will place your art in the contest too... Sometimes a drawing as a base for the painting is better art than the finished product - I am writing about my self....smiles.
8 - I will post an image of the old master artwork as a cover for the contest, will mail to you the large image of the art to be painted. Please do not download your own from the internet. I might be a copyrighted photo of the art.
9 - I am here for you, ask please, I will answer everyone. Any artwork that will be different from the subject given will be removed, this contest is also to see different styles in between different artist, for the same subject.
10 - You can upload up to 3 images, maybe 2 of work in progress and the 3rd final artwork, or for those who work fast, 3 different artworks
