    If it was truly "completely different" then there would be nothing of the original picture left, and you could thus sell it as your own work. But you might not get as much for it as you paid for the earlier picture. Better to buy a blank canvas to do your own painting.

    Custom car and bike shops do that every day. You just can't pretend that you made the Chevy to begin with.

    The painting is your own work, the item purchased is not.
