Cheating or not?

Postby NSEArts » Sat Sep 17, 2016 7:30 am

I met with a fellow artist for lunch in a local pub and we discussed the different artists whom we know. Cheating came into the conversation. Please don't misunderstand me, I “don't” under any circumstances put photos on photoshop and edit them to look like paintings and pass them off as such. I do, however, make my own templates and draw around them when I begin my paintings. Just out of curiosity, do you consider that cheating or not?

Not cheating at all. Lots of artists use transparency paper or projections to create drawing templates of the objects they will paint.

I dont think it can be considered as cheating and many people out there are also doing this!
