The 14th Annual WetCanvas Holiday Portrait Swap Pairings, Sharing & Paintings Thread!

Hi, everyone!

I have done the pairing!

I took into consideration the info you all provided me with in regards to whether you wanted International or not, and who you told me you have been paired with in the past.

Now, not everyone got back to me about previous pairs, so please let me know ASAP if you did end up with a swap partner that you've already had.... or *gasp* if I missed anyone!

I also added myself in, as we had an uneven number of people signed up -- I'm happy to join you all!

... so... ..... drumroll, please.....

PAIRS:

bethanyt -- Lauren F-M

journeyman -- Fedetony

horsthh – Amai

Dea – kazmik

MDerby – Schuee

PaintBoss – LucyLove

Talisman – ErinEmily

KreativeK – 123harry

wal_t – talinka

ArtistOz – Indiana Kate

Marie-Thomas – emdoug

shebydo – Sluggoannie

shubert – dollardays

Here is a link to our sign-up thread, as at the beginning of it, Kevin Wueste kindly posted up his excellent guide to how to take great reference photos for your swap partners:

Thanks for posting this, and getting it started. I'm super excited to take some shots and start my exchange! (I have some brand new oil bars burning a hole in my apron )

I'm lovin' all this enthusiasm!

Let the fun -- and the art-making -- begin!

Bethany -- I'm so glad that we are swap partners. A while back we had talked about doing each others' portraits, so now we are!

Thank you, Mike. I have your photos and have made a start in coloured pencils.

I feel like a car at pole position, ready to start the race! Just waiting to hear back from Lucy....

I’ve made a start on Mike’s portrait, in Polychromos pencils

Yes, exiting to see someone emerge from a blank sheet!

Thank you, Marie-Thomas. To my detriment, sometimes, I think. I am trying to slow myself and observe closely.

I would be intersted to know what colours other coloured pencil users choose for skin tones, being very new to this. I have asked the question on the coloured pencil forum.

Schuee thats great. I will enjoy watching this develop. I started yours today but it is only in the canvas prep stage. I am doing oil on 8x10 canvas, but I will use liquin, so hopefully I can get it to you by Christmas.
