It is surprising that many well-known impressionist painters used still raw photos to create their artworks. They added colors and their vision to the original raw photograph, changed proportions and saved money because they didn’t have to pay art models any more. The results were amazing. For example, Edgar Degas used 3 raw photos to create his famous Ballet Dancers. Other artists followed Degas’ idea and also started to use photographs while painting their masterpieces.
