A 4K TV is not what is needed - the image is to be projected onto a water color board.

4K projectors are too expensive for us. The next best thing is a "business" class LCD projector that has a resolution of 1080p. We plan on getting an Epson EX9200 PRO for $799. This projector's native mode is 1920 x 1200 which is more than 2M in pixel size. This Epson has been available only since last September and is not discounted yet.

Update: I went to my local Best Buy, the projector was not in stock, although a dummy was on display, and they said they are not carrying the Epson EX9200 PRO any more, although they had 40 in their Orlando warehouse. Rather than order one I went to Staples and they had one in stock, and I bought it.

Good news, its works better than I expected. The image is bright and clear showing fine details needed to create a watercolor portrait. Images taken with an A850 and added to Photo on our MacBook Pro 15 inch Retina were used to test the projector. The MacBook was connected to the projector with a Staples HDMI cable.
