2019 Annual Portrait Swap -- who is interested in participating?

Hi, artists!

With October underway, we need to figure out if there is enough interest to run the Portraiture swap this year.

While we had a lot less participants in the 2018 swap, all the artists got their portraits done and sent to their partners and it was a great success.

So, who is interested in participating again this year?

Hi, all!
So sorry for the delay in my reply here.

So, we have 10 people who definitely want to participate - and it's not too late to register on here.
However, the cut off to register on here will be midnight on November 10 (tomorrow), so I can match up for swap partners by November 11.

Please let me know ASAP if you have already been partnered with any of the other participants, so that you don't get a swap partner that you've had before.

So, to answer the questions about how the swap works....

1. Once you find out who your partner is, please send them a private message via Wetcanvas so that you can get each other's email addresses. You'll need to email each other reference photos of yourself, as well as exchange mailing addresses.

2. Reference Photos: I recommend sending a few for your partner to choose from, and so that they get familiar with what you look like, which all helps for a good portrait and likeness. Make sure that the photos are clear, in focus, with good, natural lighting.

3. Media: Your portrait can be in whatever media, such as drawing media, painted in watercolours, oils, or acrylics. Bear in mind that you will be mailing it, so size and weight need to be considered.

4. Timeframe: This is the "Holiday" swap, so participants have always aimed to send them by some time in December. As we are starting a bit later than usual, I am asking that you complete and mail your portrait by the end of December; the end of 2019.

5. Please keep in contact with your partner! Let them know how you are progressing, and if there are any problems or complications.

6. We all want to see how your portrait is progressing, and we love Work-in-Progress photos (WIP) and the finished portrait. I'll start a thread for this once the pairs have been announced.

7. In case of any issues or worries about your swap partner, please do not post about it in the swap thread. Please send a PM to me or Bethany. Thanks!
