Personalizing Photographs Taken to New Heights!

Personalizing Photographs Taken to New Heights!

Just when you thought that no more could be done with the humble photograph, I’ve gone and found another website that turns your photographs into pieces of hand drawn art! The difference being, that these are being done by a real person. I’ve seen the paintings that this young woman has produced for myself and thought I’d test her skills and send her across a couple of images I took of myself and see how they turned out! – You may, if you’re a forum member, recognise the image below from somewhere?

Nicole Black is an English artist looking to push the boundaries and take her love of photography one step further, so, she’s started painting photos (You can get your own done) I had one done in oil pastel (Above) and the other is a water colour (Below) the results are remarkable! When I was sent my paintings, I was actually very impressed. This isn’t the first time or place you can have this done, but it’s certainly the first time I’ve ever seen someone providing this service by hand!

If this looks like something that interests you, you can find out more on the website. Your photographs can be either completed as a pencil drawing, fine liner drawing or water colour painting. The choice is entirely up to you.
All drawings will be completed on top quality water colour paper (16.5″ x 11.5″) and then posted out to your address.

This was the first time I’d seen myself painted and I was very happy with the result! A very different take on the whole choice surrounding the printing and hanging of your images! You can get yours done at www.nicoleblack.com .
