How would one go about obtaining permission to paint this?

I guess you've pretty much got permission to paint whatever you want. The problem would come if you tried to profit from it...
I will have the chance to achieve perfection, when and only when I can remember the future.

 :think: ok

How would one go about painting the dust?

I love this picture. I really would love to try it, but want to make it a nice big painting.

There will be contact information in the magazine. See what it says under the photo too. Copyright laws vary in different countries but I have always found that if I have asked a photographer or editor or writer personally for permission, most of them let me use their material on condition I added a note to identify the source. (I have published stuff and created a bit of software.) I haven't used material if people wanted payment and a few do of course because it is their livelihood.

Maryna, that definitely would make a stunning painting.   :gl2:

Maryna, I must say this is a stunning picture. The way I understand it, you can paint it for yourself, but you can't sell it unless you have permission. Find out what the copyrights are. The dust would be a fade out like you would do a mist, or a fog. Nolan talked about it on another forum. Can't wait to see what you can do with this.

you can paint the photo without permission as long as the painting remains in your personal collection. You would need permission to sell or even give the painting away. In the mag, the photographer is credited, you would then need to look up the photographer and ask permission.
