The painted photographs are unique, original works of fine art.
They begin as original fine art photography images by Dan Carmichael.
Images are not processed automatically. Other photographers often use an automated process where they press a single button and automatically transform a photograph into an oil painting or watercolor. I do not use this method.
Rather, my painted photographs are meticulously brushed which may involve thousands of strokes, and hours of work. Because the process is similar to traditional painting on canvas, each finished work is a unique original.
The result is a work of art that truly looks like an original painting, and like an original oil painting done on canvas, each work can never be exactly duplicated again. Each is truly original .
Prints are professionally printed using fine art papers and professional inks with high archival ratings.
When matted, framed, and hung on your wall, they do not look like traditional photographs. They look like what they are: original and unique works of art.
The painting styles are varied. Some may look similar to a watercolor, some to an oil painting, and others a unique style of their own.
Unfortunately, at the small sizes images are displayed on the web, the subtleties of the intricate brush strokes cannot be easily seen. On a full size print, they can be.
This is a close-up that illustrates the fine detail of the brush strokes.
