The 13th Annual WetCanvas Holiday Portrait Swap Pairings, Sharing & Paintings Thread!

The 13th Annual WetCanvas Holiday Portrait Swap Pairings, sharing and Paintings thread!

Here forthwith are the 2016 Holiday Pairings ! Thank you again everyone for signing up! I know everyone is looking forward to getting started - the key - is to enjoy the process and the results and have fun! (OK that's "keys" plural.. )..

A little background on the "how" of matching: The pairings were made this year using the rand() function again via Microsoft Excel. I had Excel generate random numbers for each swap member; I then sorted one half randomly, then sorted the other half randomly and then matched the two halves again - randomly. If there is a mistake - please let me know via PM and I will do my best to help! I have a back-up painter ( me! and others my pm me if they wish to take on add'l members) if we need one. I worked to support locale requests but they may not be perfect ( as well as suitably random). I appreciate your flexibility! If I spelled your WC name imperfectly please take it up with my bosses! If you have a problem please email me ! I will do my best to fix it!

This year we would really like it if you would share your Works-in-Progress ( W.I.P's) and finals here and a "selfie" ( portrait of you and your new painting) upon receipt!). Please post at least your final work and a photo of you and your new painting when you receive it! Please be sure to thank your partner for their hard work! Remember the goal is to have these complete and on their way by the first week in December. So get your photos sent as soon as you are able! ( via personal email ).

and now..

the list:

Please note that your partner is to the left -or right and on the same row as you. Example - snapV and shubert are partners - and so on (USA /domestic swap were (hopefully) connected to like-minded folks ;for the rest - the drum roll.. dldldldldldldldldldldldld








Please take nice, clear, well-lit images ( I suggest using a single light source ). Please no snapshots or blurry, poorly lit images.. it only takes a little time to get some nice images for your partner. I find email or dropbox is the best way to share higher resolution ( read: multi-megabyte jpegs).. the PM system on WetCanvas is likely NOT the best way to share images ( they are reduced in quality to 800x800 pixels).

Thank you all and have fun. I am in back-up in-case we get a drop-out and am happy to have other folks in back-up for the swap.

Cheers - Kevin W and the Portraiture Team 2016

Re: The 13th Annual WetCanvas Holiday Portrait Swap Pairings, Sharing & Paintings Thread!

My name seems to be missing Hope it can be resolved as I am looking forward to participate.


Edit : I see marialenaS is mentioned 2 times so I suppose there is a mixup between her name and mine so that one of her two partners is mine. So Alane of Nancy S

horsth, I see that is outside email is set to "no" but Jaxhil may receive PM emails inside the WC system ( the second option) - so it appears that he CAN receive PM messages (unless I am seeing that and you are not). Try that please if you can.

Sorry, as the standard way this works is folks need to email each other starting with a PM via the WC mail system. He (or she) may not even know they have the mail turned off. Likely, at some point the member will see this conversation as well.

Upate: I have emailed Jaxhil to contact you.

Kevin
