Default Copyright on photos

There is a photo of a Kingfisher on Flickr that I want to use as a model for a painting I want to do.

I emailed the owner of the photo to request permission to use it, but I haven't heard anything in return.

My painting is going to be a gift for a friend, not something to sell.

Do you think it is illegal for me to paint a picture of the bird from this photo?

I Don't *think* so.. because you aren't printing it, blowing it up and selling it as is..
You are putting it out there in your own version..

I agree I don't think it would be illegal.
