Can a portrait artist use a commissioned work for self promotion?
I have just begun my business (formally) painting commissioned portraits. I wanted to know if I can use images of paid commissioned portraits that I created but no longer own for self promotion. Do I need to get permission from the person who originally commissioned the work, or permission from the person whose image is in the portrait? If I wanted to make a copy of a portrait that I painted but no longer own for resale, can I do it?

Commissioned portrait is actually free along with free of most copyrights, plus the consumer confirms the consumer will certainly produce almost any appropriate actions considered by others with regard to by using photo product that isn't free along with clear of most copyrights. Well,So speculate you might need a written permission.
