• Is it wrong to recreate someone else's art and then sell it?

    Best answer: If the artist is long dead, over 70 years, such as Caravaggio, then his paintings are out of copyright so you can make copies. But all the same you must make it clear that they are copies and not originals and that is allowed to make copies as they are not forgeries. For a living artist there are copyright problems... show more

    For a living artist there are copyright problems and it would be illegal to sell copies.

    How to better this painting?

    Best answer: I think your painting is beautiful just the way it is. I also wanted to make a comment about the two answers you received.

    Best answer: I think your painting is beautiful just the way it is. I also wanted to make a comment about the two answers you received. Clearly, this painting isn't meant to be a realistic version of anything. Just because something isn't there doesn't mean you can't use your imagination. Painting would be dull and boring if everything looked EXCTLY like a picture or real life. I like your take on the Eiffel Tower and love how you remixed it from imagination. Truly, I do not expect you to create real accurate versions of the tower if you just started painting 2-3 months ago. If you don't know how to draw that's fine. I think you came very close and you can tell its suppose to be the Eiffel Tower. I do see some issues with distance and perception. Don't worry you will get better with time. Again, I think your painting is absolutely beautiful and can clearly see what you are trying to convey. Have you tried taking painting classes? Are you just doing this as a hobby? I think you have natural talent as an artist and a good painting class will help to refine your skills. Keep going! I'm curious to see your paintings in another 3-6 months from now. For a beginner this is very good and continue to grown your own style. Of course, continue to study nature and you're environment. The first artist is mother nature and her lessons are free.

  • What colour is this?

    What colour is this?

    This is my favourite colour but I don’t know how to describe it, how would you describe it? Is it periwinkle or what? Don’t just say blue, I want to know what shade it is

  • Can you legally use other artists works and make something else out of it?

    I want to enter this art exhibit/contest thing and I absolutely love Vincent Van Gogh. I was thinking about taking elements from my favorite paintings of his and putting them together in a new orginal piece of my own. Can I legally do that?

  • Is there a god or saint of “having a crush” or something similar?

    Best answer: Aphrodite is a famous Greek goddess of love. Of the eros kind. Venus is her Roman equivalent. And as for Norse goddesses..? There is Freyja. Just to mention a few. :)

    EDIT: also, Isis! But she stands for a lot more than JUST that. Same with Freyja, too.

  • If it were ever sold at auction, how much do you think the Mona Lisa might fetch?

    Best answer: It's priceless. It would never be sold. The Louvre is not in financial trouble and if it was, they would sell something else, not the Mona Lisa.
