Paintings Made from Others' Photographs = Illegal.
Photographs are automatically copyrighted the minute the photographer presses the button. Unless the photographer has expressly given permission for use, making a painting based on a photo infringes on national and international copyright laws; photos are subject to the same stringent copyright rules as are paintings and illustrations.
If You are Asked by a Client to Copy Someone's Painting or Photograph:
Not only is it an insult to say to an artist "Hey, I like your work, but will you copy this other guy's art for me?" It can also be illegal. Give a suggestion as to what you will paint instead, in your own style and of your own design. Let them know that you don’t want to break any copyright laws.
If you ARE an artist, you may come up with something better than the original.
